Palindromic Riches

Today is a Palindrome Day in all date formats (UK, USA, ISO).
It’s also a palindrome day of the year (33)
and there are a palindrome number of days left in the year (333).
Quite a unique day!

Now, if I’d been paying better attention I would have written about today (02/02/2020) in time for last week’s email. But here we are.

Read all about it here.

It’s been 909 years since a similar day and it will be 101 years until another such, so I hope you enjoy(ed) the moment.

    Well, I sure missed the first occurrence. Are you suggesting I might not be around for the next?

    • Isabel Gibson says:

      Tom – You can manage your celebrations based on your own expectations. Me, I decided not to wait for the next one.

  2. Alison Uhrbach says:

    I wondered why you weren’t commenting?? but I did appreciate the day and its significance.

    I knew a gay couple got married on a similar numbers day. They were very excited about it. (Eludes me.)

    • Isabel Gibson says:

      Barbara – We would have tried to get married on 06/06/06 but the Big Guy had a golf weekend of many years standing that took precedence. And likely we couldn’t have got a booking anyway.

  5. I was thinking of you on 20200202. And had one legitimate occasion on which to write the date!
