If you thought 'Twosday' was cool, February has many more palindromes

This month has nine dates that are palindromes

February 2022 is a very special month in which the month matches the final two digits of the year, a phenomenon that has not happened since January 2011 and will not occur again until March 2033. 

With "Twosday" having come and gone, the palindromes are not going anywhere. Until the end of February, the dates of the year will be palindromes.

What is a palindrome?

Merriam-Webster dictionary defines a palindrome as a word, verse, sentence or a number that reads the same backward or forward with notable examples such as "never odd or even" and "1331." 

According to the Farmer’s Almanac, some cultures believe palindrome dates are a sign of good luck. The next palindrome date is March 20, 2023, or 3/20/2023
