Here in Oz we celebrate it on the 5th of April. [Wink]

He's just pointing out that we Merkins do mm-dd-yy, whereas the whole rest of the world does dd-mm-yy. [Razz]

When I use the latter, I try to avoid confusing things by writing 4 May 11. (And I give a colleague crap about writing 4/5/11, as most near everyone else will think it's the date TFD said. [Razz] )

P.S. Thread hijack: I might be interested in seeing coherent remarks in another thread, but I refuse to click it after seeing something disgusting in the Active Topics summary.

I realize the date reversal thing with most of the rest of the world. However in this case it just doesn't work because the name of the month is used as opposed to the number.

I find your lack of Fifth in the Fourth disturbing...
