2010 brings with it a New Year’s bonus — a date that’s the same backward and forwards, Jan. 2, 2010 or 01/02/2010.
From M-W online:
palindrome: a word, verse, or sentence (as â€œAble was I ere I saw Elbaâ€) or a number (as 1881) that reads the same backward or forward
Mostly, we think of palindromes as words, the simplest being three-letter words that begin and end with the same letter:
- mom, dad, gag, poop, nun, aha, ere
Some multi-syllabic examples:
- A Toyota
- A man, a plan, a cat, a canal – Panama
- Dumb mud
- Top spot
- Madam, I’m Adam.
- Sex at noon, taxes.
- Was it a rat I saw?
- I did, did I?
