Today, February 22nd, 2022 is not only uncommon but very rare being a palindrome and an ambigram at the same time. Today’s date can be read in any direction, including backwards and upside down when written in the British style 22/02/2022. A palindrome is a word, phrase or sequence that reads the same backward as forward, and an ambigram is a visual that is same even upside down.
