This year, for ten days in the middle of May, every date written numerically is a palindrome. That means the date can be read the same forwards or backwards.
See for yourself:
It's been dubbed the unofficial "Palindrome Week," and fans of word and numbers games are celebrating on social media. Many of them are sharing their favorite palindromes or creating new ones.
