Saving the best ’til last


As the year draws to a close, it throws up perhaps the best date of the year – if you write it in the American (month/day/year) format.

Today is the 31st December 2023, 31/12/23 to those of us in the UK, but across the pond today’s date is written as 12/31/23. Dispense with the slashes separating month/day/year and you are left with 123123 – a date which will not come around for another hundred years.

Whatever your resolutions and plans for the new year, I am sure you are already looking forward to the 4th February – 4/2/24 or 4224 – our first palindromic date of the new year (of course, our American cousins will need to wait until the 2nd of April …)

I hope that you had a great 2023, and wishing you an even better 2024.

Happy New Year!
