Today’s date is interesting – we haven’t had one of these ones, where all the numbers are the same, for thirteen months.
The bonus of a date like this is that no matter how you write it – forwards, backwards, upside down – it has the same meaning on both sides of the North Atlantic Ocean – which means that everyone will know what they are talking about! I’ve been caught out in the past with how dates are written – take 8.12.12, for example. To me, that date is the eighth day of December 2012, but in the USA it means the twelfth day of August 2012. Very confusing, but at least today, there can be no confusion!
Actually, I realise I don’t know how they write dates in Canada – is it like us, or like America? What about other countries?
