Default Happy 7/8/9

This only applies to you Yanks.

No one wished y'all a happy 7/8/9.

Everyone else will get to celebrate in about 1 month.

While I've never liked your Month/Day/Year system (but am not keen on our Day/Month/Year system either - best is Year/Month/Day for ease of sorting), at least the American way has the advantage that you'll be able to wish each other similar pleasantries as late as December 13, 2014 whereas by then these happy festivals will be a thing of the past elsewhere in the world.

You worried me for a moment. My sister-in-law got to choose the date of her caesarean and chose 7/8/9 'so it was easy to remember'! I thought I'd forgotten it. (I'll be an uncle for the fifth time. )

Well, thank you!

Some of us are still recovering from our 7/4/9 weekend (no arithmetical significance).

That is so cool - only a very few will get to have a birthday as neat as 7/8/9...no matter how you write the date!

Please could you ask her to ask the surgeon to carry out the caesarean at 12:34:56?
