Aziz S. Inan, an electrical engineering professor at the University of Portland, said that palindrome days tend to occur only in the first few centuries of each millennium in the mm-dd-yyy British format.
“In the mm-dd-yyyy format, the first of 36 Palindrome Days in the current millennium (January 1, 2001, to December 31, 3000) was October 2, 2001 (10-02-2001) and the last such day will be September 22, 2290 (09-22-2290),” he noted.
