12/20/2012 — Another Permutation Day!

Published by MrHonner on

Today we celebrate our final Permutation Day of the year!  I call days like today permutation days because the digits of the day and month can be rearranged to form the year.

Not only is today a permutation day, but it is also a transposition day!  A transposition is a rearrangement that simply swaps too things, like ’12’ and ’20’.

Celebrate Permutation Day by mixing things up!  Try doing things in a different order today, or maybe try swapping two things in your schedule to honor today’s transposition!

I believe that we’ve actually had more than four permutation days this year.
January 22 (0122)
February 12 (0212)
February 21 (0221)
November 22 (1022)
December 02 (1202)

Yes, Jacob, I think you pointed this out in another post and I forgot all about it. Thanks for reminding me!
