It's The Last Palindrome Week In Our Lifetime!

September 10, 2019
Palindrome Date

Happy Palindrome Week!

A palindrome is a word, number, etc. that reads the same forwards and backwards. For example, racecar and 1331 are both palindromes. 

Today kicks off the start of Palindrome Week because for the next 10 days each date will be a palindrome thanks to it being September (Month = 9) and the year 2019 (Ending =19). This may be super nerdy but it's fascinating because this is the last time this will happen in our lifetime! It's important to note that the dates will only be palindromes if you write the date in the m-dd-yy format.
