A Rare Occurrence Is Happening This Week, It’s A Palindrome Week
The internet has gone crazy with people posting about today's date, 2-22-22, being palindrone day, but did you realize it's happening all week.
It's pretty cool, today is 2-22-22, and yes it's what is called a palindrome. This means everyday this week can be read the same forwards and backwards! Today is also being called "twosday", because the palindrome falls on a Tuesday. Believe it or not the next time all of these conditions align in the same way is in the year 2422, 400 years from now, so enjoy the day and the week, it'll be a while before it happens again.
Now many people believe that 2-22-22 holds a strong numerical energy, and is the perfect day to manifest your personal and professional goals. Even the National Weather Service is excited about this too.
According to timeanddate.com, the dates are similar to word palindromes in that they are symmetrical. This year is filled with 22 palindrome dates, which is something we actually don't see all that often because there are only two years in a century where this can happen: the years ending in 11 and 21.
Palindromes have been around for a long time and date back to the days of the Roman Empire, they also have some history in ancient Greece as well.
A palindrome day happens every once in a while, in fact the last one we saw was just earlier this month on Groundhog Day, 2-2-22, and the next palindrome day will be next year on March 20, 2023, A palindrome week is not something we see all that often, it's kind of a rare occurance. The last palindrome week we had was back in December of 2021, from December 1 through December 9, and the next palindrome week doesn't happen till the next century.
