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.

06/06/06 – The Bible's Book of Revelation calls 666 the number of the beast, so more than a few eyebrows were raised as June 6, 2006 approached. In the days prior, the evangelical Raptureready.com website said the day had a "rapture index" of 156, suggesting that it was "fasten your seatbelts" time, the Associated Press reported. Others cashed in -- moviemakers released the remake of the horror film "The Omen" on the date.
