Today is the only date this century that reads the same backward and forward around the world!

Today is February 2, 2020, or 02/02/2020 and it’s a special date for reasons other than the Super Bowl and Groundhog Day. It’s a palindrome date, which means that it reads the same forward as it does backward.

The eight-digit date is especially rare because it works in both America, where dates are written as day-month-year, and in other countries where dates are written as month-day-year.

The eight-digit date is especially rare because it’s an international palindrome as well. It works whether you write the date as “Month/Day/Year” or “Day/Month/Year,” as many other countries do.

The last such palindrome date to occur was 11/11/1111, 909 years ago. And it won’t happen again for another 101 years, when the calendar turns to 12/12/2121.
