I noticed that two recent dates had the property that the day-month combination was just a permutation of the year.

This struck me as a rare occurrence.  And then I realized that we had an honest-to-goodness palindrome date coming up!

This is definitely a rare occurrence!  In celebration, I recommend that you do something forwards and then backwards.

I suppose the question now is, “When is the next palindrome day?”

Guess I missed that one, although the leading 0 may disqualify it from being a true palindrome.

I did, however, enjoy reading the comments at the bottom of the above article.
