Palindrome Week marks a time when each date can be read symmetrically backward and forward (i.e. 4/13/14, 4/14/14, etc). We are currently in a Palindrome Week, which started with May 10, or 5/10/15, and continues through the week (and technically into the following week through Tuesday, May 19, 2015, or 5/19/15). Here are some other intriguing dates that have been the source of fascination and speculation.

Pi Day was extra special this year, as 2015 stretched the symbolic March 14 celebration out a little longer to 3.1415. If you want to take it even further, 9:26 a.m. (or p.m. if you're not observing military time) on Saturday, March 14, 2015, marked 3.1415926, or the first eight digits of pi.
