Today is a very special day for people all around the world – it is a palindrome, which means that it is the same when read either forward or backwards.

Today is 2 February 2020, which is also written as 02-02-2020 in both the MM/DD/YYYY format and the DD/MM/YYYY format.

This is the first time that this will occur in this century. The previous palindrome date occurred on 11/11/1111, which is 909 years ago.

According to Dictionary.com, a palindrome means a word, line, verse, number, sentence, etc., reading the same backward as forwards.

The word was derived from the Greek word Palindromos, which means recurring.

After today, the next palindrome date will be in the next century, which will be on 03/03/3030, which is in 101 years. Many people who are alive today will most likely not be around for the next time it happens.

This is also what makes it so special, as people realize that they were not around for the last one and will most likely not be around for the next one.

Hence, people took to social media to celebrate the day in a big way, using the hashtag #PalindromeDay to acknowledge the day.

After the 3030 palindrome day, people will have to wait 1,010 years, until April 4, 4040.
