Today is 02/02/2020, the first palindrome day in over 900 years

On this Super Bowl Sunday and Groundhog Day, the date can be read the same from back to front.

Number enthusiasts and amused Twitter users were treated to a rarity on Sunday as the date, Feb. 2, 2020 (02/02/2020), was recognized globally as a palindrome — meaning it reads the same forwards as it does backwards.

The hashtag #PalindromeDay started to trend worldwide.

Some users also noted that it’s the 33rd day of the year with 333 days left in 2020.

The special date also falls on Super Bowl Sunday and Groundhog Day.
