But October 2nd 2001 wasn't a palindrome day in Europe, where it would have been written 02-10-2001. Is 02-02-2020 the first worldwide palindrome day for countries using the Gregorian calendar in over 900 years? I'm thinking the last one was 11-11-1111, which works out.

Oh wait, that doesn't make sense. The Gregorian calendar wasn't even used in Europe back then, let alone America...

'overtired'..........."The Battle of Hastings was fought on 14 October 1066" ..You had better let The British Museum know that the Battle did not take place.

Has to work for all, e.g. 11/02/2011 would be 02/11/2011 in USA or vice versa.
