    I've never understood why the US puts the month before the day.

    Smallest to largest: day, month, year seems logical.

    Yes I think largest to smallest makes sense with hours and minutes as the hour is the key orientator, but as you say, mixing it up with days months and years seems odd.

    That was your mistake, think the US would be logical. Don't forget we are stuck on inches feet and miles too, quite logical, eh.

    It's easier to say "July 12th" than "the 12th of July."
