Today is a very special day of the century.
The date — February 2, 2020, or 02/02/2020 — is a palindrome date, meaning it reads the same forwards as it does backward.
According to a report by Wshungton Post, this special sequence will only occur this century.
The last time such a palindrome date occurred was 909 years ago on 11/11/1111.
It won’t happen again for another 101 years, when the calendar turns to 12/12/2121.
