I think it's really cool that today's date is 10/10/10!
And for once, I don't have to wonder if the date is written American style (October 10, 2010) or British style (10 October 2010).
For example, tomorrow's date will be written 10/11/10 in the US and 11/10/10 here in the UK.
I had a Spanish language teacher once who was from Spain, who lived in the US and traveled back and forth often between the US and Spain. She had a great idea how to keep the dates straight: she wrote Roman numerals for the month. That way it didn't matter if she wrote the date US style or European style, she always knew which was the day and which was the month. So today would be 10/X/10 in Europe or X/10/10 in the US. Either way, she knew the X was the tenth month so it didn't matter if it was in the first or second position.
I've always thought that was really smart but have never adopted it myself. I usually write the month abbreviation when I'm writing a date so I don't have to wonder which is the day and which is the month.
How do you write dates?
