    What are you talking about? It is peculiar to Britain. The British system employs a date/month/year format whereas the American system is in the format of month/date/year. It has become relatively worldwide in recent years because of the Internet where the manufacturers of hardware and software originate mostly from the US thus the default settings would be in the American system of things, including the date format. It was obligatory that it has fast become a worldwide date system as a result, but not traditionally.

    You misunderstood my comment that day/month/year is not peculiar to Britain. I repeat it is not peculiar to Britain as all over the world countries use day/month/year and in fact, I believe that only USA use month/date/year.

    I use the word peculiar, not in the meaning of strange, but rather not only used in Britain, therefore day/month/year system cannot be claimed as British but rather worldwide - USA's system is unique.
