English term or phrase: Date order
Could you let me know how the general Spanish population living in the US would write and say dates. e.g. would April 15th 1965 be 04/15/65 or as Europeans would have it 15/04/65.

Thank you.

Zoe's right - and if you're putting it in numerical form, use day/month/year. Cheers!

day/month/year


Explanation:
Usual order in LA Spanish is day/month/year.

"5 de abril de 1990" is the traditional way. "Abril 5, 1990" is also widely used.
