Two moms welcome two babies born at 2:22pm on 22/2/22
Couples flock to courthouse for 2-22-22 wedding date

Yesterday marked a special date - it was Twosday.

22/2/22 is a remarkable date as 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.

Aside from the date lending itself to a fun “Twosday” pun, mathematicians were also excited by the date on yesterday’s calendar.

For a number of families welcoming new arrivals, the date was even more special.

ABC7NY reports that in Catholic Health's Mercy Hospital in Long Island, parents Wendy Campos-Vasquez and Mercedes Manual Coreas welcomed baby Logan Jowill Coreas Vazquez at exactly 2:22pm.

Across the Hudson in New Jersey’s Hackensack Meridian Raritan Bay Medical Center, a new mom also welcomed baby boy Starlin Lugo Carrera at 2:22pm too (or, two).

Twins were also born at the “two-rrific” time at the Good Samaritan Hospital in West Islip and St. Charles Hospital in Port Jefferson.

People also celebrated the date by tying the knot.

Newlywed Kirm Singh joked: “I thought the date was cool, easy to remember… and it’s a Tuesday on top of that. So it’s Tuesday, 2/22/22.”

If you’re looking for wedding date inspo and you’re a fan of palindromic numbers, the next one won’t be until Thursday 3/3/33, or “Threesday”. Lots of time to find a potential suitor, then!
