Use Your Words… for the calendar.

US vs. UK

mm/dd/yy = dd/mm/yy

SMTWTFS = MTWTFSS

November 24th = the 24th of November

Sometimes when I get emails from my honey with dates in them, my brain freezes. This only happens for about half a second but I have to look at it and think… is he giving me dates in British or American? 12/09/13… is that September 12th or is it December 9th?

And as for how he or any of his fellow country people would tell me that date… the day comes first then the month. Why are we so different?
