I had half an ear on Today earlier in the week. I think that was the daily Hard Sums question, set by Bobby Seagull.

What's really special about today's date is that it's a palindrome in both the UK...
dd.mm.yyyy
02.02.2020
...and the US.
mm.dd.yyyy
02.02.2020
This is extremely rare, indeed it's the only such date this century.
He's not the only person to point this out but some go overboard, while only going halfway; saying it's a truly global, pan-format palindromic date, when it obviously doesn't apply if your date custom is to put the month as a word or in Roman numerals. Nor if you follow a different calendar, which is quite a bit of the world.
