Palindromic Days?


This has been an interesting month so far...did you know that, since the 10th of July and until tomorrow, we have what are called palindromic days?  What exactly are palindromic days?  Well, a palindrome is  a word, phrase, or sequence that reads the same backward as forward. Here are a couple of examples : nun, madam, Tim Smit, Dammit I'm Mad. Heard of any of those?

Well, did you know you can do the same with dates? If the numerical sequence of date is mo/day/year you can easily form a palindrome with the date. This kind of thing only happens but for a few days each year. This year, it only happens for ten days this month. Interesting, isn't it?
