Question: Why does America put the month first?

But why did Americans choose to write the month first? One of the hypotheses is that the United States borrowed the way it was written from the United Kingdom who used it before the 20th century and then later changed it to match Europe (dd-mm-yyyy).

Does the day or month come first in America?

In the United States, dates are traditionally written in the month-day-year order, with neither increasing nor decreasing order of significance.

Does the month or day come first?

In European countries and most other places in the world, the day comes first, then the month, and then the year. The fourth day in January would be written like this: 4 January 2005. 4/1/05.
