About the Date Pattern Calculator

What is the Date Pattern Calculator?

The Date Pattern calculator discovers the many repetitive or reversible patterns that calendar dates can form in different date order formats, as well as include the hours, minutes, and seconds into the pattern if desired.

Many people like to use unique dates such as sequential dates (01/02/03) or repetitive dates (07/07/07) to have a special event so that it is easy to remember.  Now you use the Date Pattern Calculator to help you find the perfect date that has a special characteristic.

How to Use the Date Pattern Calculator

You can discover the different patterns that a calendar date creates by following these steps:

How to Read the Results Table

The results table will highlight in green the most interesting calendar dates. You can view how the pattern is developed by clicking on any row. This will automatically show a pop-up box underneath the selected row with an animation explaining how that specific calendar date pattern works.

You can filter the results table at any time by selecting a different option from the drop-down menus and clicking on “Look for patterns” button.

The pattern type is based on two different types of patterns, repeating dates and palindrome dates. When the “Type” is listed as “Repeat 2 x 3” this means that the first two numbers repeat in the sequence three times. A palindrome date is a date that can be read forward and backward such as November 02, 2011 or 11/02/2011 (MM/DD/YYYY format).
