Sunday the 2nd of February 2020 is a very special day. It doesn’t matter if you are British or American, but if you write the date as a set of numbers it will read the same backwards as well as forwards:
The date format in the UK, when writing in number form, is day, month, year, whereas in the US it is month, day, year. My personal opinion is that the British version is more logical, because the time intervals are getting progressively longer, but that is another matter!
My own date of birth, for example, is 11.08.1952 – I was born in August but an American would think I turned up in November. I don’t know what they do in our countries – perhaps somebody can enlighten us?
However, if the numbers for day and month are the same, there is no problem. When it comes to palindrome dates, that means that certain dates will work as palindromes wherever you are.
So when will the next one be? I originally thought it must be 03.03.3030, but I reckon that 12.12.2121 must be it – unless you know otherwise!
And when was the last one? Was it 11.11.1111?
