Happy Palindrome Day

“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.
