22.02.2022: social media gets excited over palindrome ‘Twosday’


Some are calling it palindrome day while others are opting for the twos day (or “Twosday”) pun but, it seems, everyone is excited about the unusual calendar event taking place on the 22 February 2022 (22.02.2022), when the day’s date can be read the same way forwards or backwards.

This palindrome day is unusual because it’s also an ambigram, meaning that on a calculator it can be read upside down in exactly the same way.

In the UK date-writing format (dd-mm-yyyy), there have only been seven palindrome days so far this century, starting with 10 February 2001 (10.02.2001), while the next is on 3 February 2030 (03.02.2030).

Commenters on social media have been sharing their excitement about the date and the good luck it is rumoured to bring.

One meme doing the rounds captures the mind-blowing confluence of features that make today’s date so distinctive.
