    Default How to write a date in Spanish

    Hi everyone!

    Can someone tell me how to correctly write a date in Spanish.

    For example if I was writing January 2nd, 2008 in English, how would I write it in Spanish? How do you translate 2nd? the nd that we put on the end of the number is throwing me off...help please! Thank you!

    Thanks for your responses.

    I am looking for the formal way of writing it. It will be printed on a card. Which way is best?

    if its on a business letter it would be
    2 de Enero, 2008
    28 de Febrero, 2007

    or if its for a wedding invitation you would write it out
    Dos de Enero del 2008 or
    Veinteiocho de Febrero del Dos mil siete
