Some dates have more than one palindromic form. For example, the date September 29, 1929, may be written as a palindrome 3 ways. Without the year, it is 9/29. With the year, it is 9/29/29 or 9/29/1929. January 10, 2011 is a four-way palindrome, as 1/10/2011, 1/10/11, I/X/MMXI, or I/X/XI. A date can be a palindrome depending on how it is said. For example, the date October 20, 2010 may be written 10/20/2010 and spoken as, “Ten, twenty, twenty-ten.”
