    In the US anyway, today is June, 7, 2008.
    06/07/08

    I know that 6 7 8 in the UK is next month.

    How does your Country do it?

    No one told you that Alabama is the only state to have big 678 celebrations? :wink:

    What I meant was how do other countries write the date. In the UK today would be 7/6/08 They write it as the 7th of June, 08. And they drive on the wrong side of the road.:wink::biggrin1:

    Atlanta GA should be celebrating, do you know why?

    lmao! I'm such a dolt sometimes. And hey, I've lived in Alabama the majority of my life, and no one bothered to tell me about the 678 celebration. Now I am really hurt :biggrin1:

    I never understood why some list the month first; increasing the units of time in order makes sense to me.
    I'm not interested enough to look it up, but I'd be grateful if someone did explain it :tongue:

    Calendar date - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    WRONG :mad:

    :rolleyes: I think the English way makes sense. It goes from the shortest time to the longest (day/month/year)

    The WRONG side of the road :confused: :mad: Ok, maybe it would make more sense to drive on the other side :redface:

    We still call it 9/11 because of the American documentaries, media etc. shown over here. We also call it the September 11th attacks.

    I agree your system is more logical, but we don't even know what month it is. :biggrin1: The international standard is YYYY/MM/DD.

    If I recall correctly passport write out the month or abbreviate it.
