Inauguration Day is First in Palindrome Number History”

You are experiencing history and you didn't even know it.

Wednesday's seven-digit palindrome is one of 26 such dates in the 21st century. It will happen again this year between December 1 and December 9. So now is the time for number lovers and followers of politics to unite, as the next one won't happen until 1-20-3021.

Another stretch of palindrome dates this year will start on December 1, jump-starting nine consecutive days filled with five-digit palindromes.

In Canada, we officially use the day, month, and year format.

The phrase "A Toyota's a Toyota" can continue as a palindrome forever, as in, "A Toyota's a Toyota's a Toyota".

Oh, and here's a fun fact. January 20, 2021, or 12021, was the first date on this current series.

The ten-day streak began on Inauguration Day with a rare seven-digit palindrome - a first in American history, according to the Farmers' Almanac.
