Unless you are Canadian, in which case it will happen on the 4th of May, 2006 (not the 5th of April), because we interpret 04/05/06 as the 4th day of the 5th month, not the 5th day of the 4th month.

but in May, it only works in reverse for a different time, eg. 06/05/04 03:02:01

Thank you...
dd/mm/yyyy folks. In order of increasing range of time units. It makes complete logical sense. Why would one ever write it mm/dd/yyyy? To match how we say it? When do we ever write things how we say them?

actually, OFFICIALLY Canada's format is y.m.d, but all three are used in practice

the m.d.y format is effectively a US format, while the d.m.y format is used almost everywhere else....but because of our influence from the US, a lot of Canadians use the m.d.y convention for business purposes -- to do otherwise can create a crapload of confusion
