Jan. 20th, 2021 is a historic day the likes of which we won’t see for centuries to come. No, we’re not talking about what’s going on in Washington, D.C. We’re talking about palindromes.
Today’s date – 1/20/2021 – is a palindrome, meaning it reads the same backwards as forwards.
A seven-digit palindrome date like this won’t happen again for 1,000 years – on Jan. 20th, 3021. But we’ll get an eight-digit palindrome on Dec. 2nd – 12/02/2021.
Why are palindromes so interesting to us? Is there any real significance to them?
