Today 02.02.2020 is the first palindrome of its kind in over 900 years

You probably woke up this morning looking forward to groundhog day, the big game, or at least the food that goes along with the big game, what you may not have realized is today 02-02-2020 (Feb. 20, 2020) is the first eight digit palindrome of its kind since way back in 11-11-1111 according to Aziz Inan professor at the University of Portland in an interview with USA TODAY yesterday.

We have seen quite a few palindromes over the last few years, like 8-18-18, but this one is unique due to being eight digits, plus it works internationally where they write the year before the date and month.

So, there you have it..something you can talk about while we wait for the big game today!
