If you look at the calendar today, you might notice something interesting - lots of twos.
That's because it's officially 'Twosday' the 22nd of February 2022.
The date of 22/2/22 is special because it’s both a palindrome and an ambigram. A palindrome is when a number or word reads the same backwards such as the date 11/11/11, and an ambigram is when a word or number reads the same upside down.
Palindromic dates fell before on 1/1/11 and 11/11/11, and there won’t be another one for over a decade. The next one will be Thursday 3/3/33, or “Threesday”.
Aside from today’s date being a fun pun, 22/2/22 can also be considered an “angel number” as the number two in numerology is linked to “energies of balance and harmony”, according to CNN.
But the special time to look out for is 22:22 tonight when both the clock and date will match.
A Twitter account that has been counting down the days to today’s date quipped: “22.02.2022 @ 22:22 is bigger than 31.12.2022 @ 00:00”.
22.02.2022 @ 22:22\n\n is bigger than \n\n31.12.2022 @ 00:00
Happy Twos-Day! \n\nDid you know? February 22, 2022 is considered as a palindrome day, where the same sequence of numbers can be read forwards and backwards. This "twos-day" is associated with the emergence of new beginnings, as we choose to embrace change in our daily livespic.twitter.com/vuJGkk9gsk

One thing to have my palindrome name but a lot more bonkers to realise that today\u2019s date is not only a palindrome but also an ambigram, that reads the same from left to right, from right to left and upside down\u2026pic.twitter.com/GlmqInQHQg
Happy TWOsday, everyone! \n\nFebruary 22, 2022 is a palindrome day or a date that can be read the same way backward or forward. \n\nMay this special day bring you the happiness that you deserve!pic.twitter.com/GeGtJUuMQx
