Mathematics, being in many ways really the study of patterns is always interested in these kind of things. We are now several years on from 19-11-1999 where all the digits in the date are odd. That was the last such date for over a thousand years, the next being 1-1-3111, but then we are enjoying an era of lots of dates where all the digits are even right now, which started on the 2-2-2000 after the last one being 28-8-888 I guess.
