MUNDANE MYSTERIES: Why is 2 22 22 “Twosday” so special and will it happen again?

If you haven’t noticed by now from everyone you’ve talked to today and all the posts in your feed… it’s 2/22/2022 AND… it falls on a Tuesday, or TWOSDAY as the internet has dubbed it. So why is this so special and mind blowing?

First of all it won’t happen on a Tuesday again for another 400 years. 2422 will be the next time we can celebrate. Which barring some miracle scientific breakthrough is well past all of our lifetimes.

A few other fun Twosday facts to throw at your friends today…

  • This century alone we have already had a couple Onesdays (1/11/11 and 11/11/11)
  • There has also been 11 other months with repetitions such as 01/01/01, 06/06/06 and 12/12/12.
  • Looking ahead we will have a Threesday on 3/3/33 11 years from now. And a Foursday on 4/4/44 11 years after that.

Fun! I would suggest playing a lot of 2’s and 22’s in the lotto tonight.
