This week marks the palindrome week where every day is a palindrome.

Happy #Palindrome Week! For the next 10 days, the date is the same forward and backward. This is the last time it'll happen in our lifetime.

(Technically, it’s not the last time in our lifetime, this will happen again on 1/20/21)

Let’s celebrate palindromes. The internet has lots of great palindromes:

  • taco cat
  • yo banana boy
  • never odd or even
  • borrow or rob
  • top spot

Do more people search for these palindromes when it’s a palindromic date?

Past palindromic dates:

8-10-18 to 8-19-18
7-10-17 to 7-19-17
6-10-16 to 6-19-16
5-10-15 to 5-19-15
4-10-14 to 4-19-14
3-10-13 to 3-19-13
2-10-12 to 2-19-12
1-10-11 to 1-19-11
