Forwards and backwards or backwards and forwards: This July is full of palindromes

COLUMBUS (WCMH) — The next nine days in July are unique when you notice that the dates are in palindrome form.

According to, a palindrome is a word or verse that reads the same forwards and backwards.

Starting Monday and ending July 19 every day is a palindrome in date form:

  • 7-10-17
  • 7-11-17
  • 7-12-17
  • 7-13-17
  • 7-14-17
  • 7-15-17
  • 7-16-17
  • 7-17-17
  • 7-18-17
  • 7-19-17

Today is the only perfect palindrome when you include the full year. The date, July 10, 2017 reads out as 7102017.
