For the 1st time in over 900 years, Sunday is an extra rare Palindrome Day

ARLINGTON, Va. (WJLA) -- Today (Feb. 2, 2020) some are thinking it’s Super Bowl Sunday and some are focusing on Groundhog Day. But to others, it’s Palindrome Day!

For the first time in more than 900 years, the full 8-digit date is a palindrome: 02022020. And it works whether you list it as month, day, year or day, month, year or year/day/month or year/month/day.

The last one was 11/11/1111.

And it will be 101 years before the next one: December 12, 2121. After that, the next one won't be until the next millennium: March 3, 3030.
