As per numerous other threads the US uses MM/DD/YYYY unlike most of the rest of us who use DD/MM/YYYY. The purpose of this thread is not to re-hash that particular issue or whether one format is inherently better than the other.
Recently it occurred to me that Americans tend to say "the 4th of July" when referring to their national day , based on their usual format I would have expected it to be referred to as "July 4th".
Does it strike anyone else as odd that Americans should refer to this date of all dates in such an "un-American" way?
Sorry if there have been previous threads on this, I tried a search and came up with nothing , but as we all know the search function can be a bit erratic.
