What is a Palindrome Day?

The date of January 2, 2010, or 01/02/2010, is a rare palindrome day.

A palindrome is a word, phrase, number other sequence of units that can be read the same way in either direction (the adjustment of punctuation and spaces between words is generally permitted), according to Wikipedia.  So, the numbers in the date 01/02/2010 are the same whether it is backward or forward, left to right or right to left.

Palindromes can also be words, names, or phrases. Some more examples include the names Bob, Ana, Eve, or Hannah; words include mom, level, and kayak; and a phrase would be “A man, a plan, a canal, Panama.”
