“The greatest danger for most of us is not that our aim is too high and we miss it, but that it is too low and we reach it.”
— Michelangelo

Today, February 22, 2022, is an omnipresent palindrome date. It’s a palindrome sequence no matter how the date is written, whether in the format of month-day-year; day-month-year; or year-month-day (2-22-22, 22-2-22).

Palindromes are words or number sequences that can be read both forward and backward. The first most common palindrome date this year was 2/2/22.

Palindrome dates occur every 11 years and no other Palindrome dates will occur in this century.

There are also palindrome words, such as mom, dad, noon, civic, just to name a few.

In addition, there are a few multi-word phrases that actually spell the same thing forward and backward, such as my gym, top spot, taco cat, racecar, etc.
