Happy Levidrome Day 1202 2021

Levidrome Date

Today is December 2, 2021. If we have a date format of mm/dd/yyyy, a common and popular date format, today would be written as 12/02/2021

Remove the slashes and we get 12022021 - a palindrome.

However with a space inserted between the mmdd combination and the year we can also get 1202 2021 - which is a levidromic pair.

The dictionaries include numbers as part of the definition of palindrome.

So the combinations 12022021 and 1202 2021 are definitely palindromic.

However, there is a bit of a debate whether numbers are consider words as well.

Since an official definition does not yet exist for levidromes, I would suggest that numbers could fall into its definition as well. After all, the number 1202 is a different valid number compared to 2021.

To be safe, we have included numbers into our definition of a levidrome which you can see on our main page. It only makes sense. Dictionaries may argue but we will let them sort that out and we will adjust our definition at that time.

This will be the last levidromic or palindromic date of the year.

Happy Levidrome Day! Oh, and also, Happy Palindrome Day!
