The United States is one of the few countries in the world that uses the mm-dd-yyyy date format.
Use our tool on this page to make sure you write the date correctly when communicating with people in the United States.
Choose month, day, and year below to convert it to the mm-dd-yyyy format.
As you can derive from the results above, mm=month, dd=day, and yyyy=year.
Month and day always use two digits. So, if it is a single month digit or single day digit, we put a zero in front of the number.
If you have limited space, you could reduce the year from yyyy to yy, where yy is the last two digits of the year.
