Happy Palindrome Week!…So What Exactly are We Celebrating?
So yeah, this week, as far as writing each day's date, reads the same forwards and backwards. Hence why it's Palindrome Week.
When you look up the definition of palindrome, this is what you get according to palindromelist.net:
Palindrome: a word, phrase, number, or other sequence of symbols or elements, whose meaning may be interpreted the same way in either forward or reverse direction. Famous examples include "Amore, Roma", "A man, a plan, a canal: Panama" and "No ‘x’ in ‘Nixon". Composing literature in palindromes is an example of constrained writing. The word “palindrome” was coined from the Greek roots palin (“again”) and dromos (“way, direction”) by the English writer Ben Jonson in the 17th century.
Some simpler examples also include "mom", "dad" or "noon". But yes, people smarter than me with words can write entire poses using palindromes. Dude!
There you have it, you bit of useless knowledge you can pass around the water cooler at work today.
