September 19, 2019 will mark the end of the last palindrome week of this century. Dictionary.com defines a palindrome as "a word, line, verse, number, sentence, etc., reading the same backward as forward, as Madam, I'm Adam or Poor Dan is in a droop."
Palindrome weeks are not particularly rare and rely on using the month-day-year format (m-dd-yy). In each century there are nine consecutive years with ten palindrome dates in a row. The next time palindrome weeks will occur will be 2111-2119.
