What do these dates and Racecar have in common?

They’re palindromes!

September 10, 2019 saw the beginning of Palindrome Week (plus a few days). For ten days up through 9.19.19 all the dates are the same when read both forwards and backwards.  Well…at least if you use the typical format found in the US: [month]-[date]-[year].  The next time we’ll see this phenomenon is 12.1.21.

As a tribute to Palindrome Week attached are some of our favorite illustrated word palindromes from the September 2018 issue of PineStraw Magazine.
