Remembering help: Let me make juice vs sunny d :)


Example: If I were to ask John Lennon when was his birthday,  he would say in Spanish "Mi cumpleaños es el 9 de octubre." But it can be any date.

It will be different if you have a birthday on the first day of a month. For example if I ask Roger Daltrey when is his birthday, he would say in Spanish "Mi cumpleaños es el primero de marzo."

(note: you do not need to make a month or a day capitalize)

And months......... and dates

Hay doce  meses en un año = There are twelve months in a year.

Hoy es el 16 de junio = Today is June 16th

Hoy es el primero de mayo (o hoy es el uno de mayo(If you want another way to say it at home)). = Today is the first of May.
