Pam from Garland, TX asks...
Which is correct "the ____ day of December 2004" or the ___ day of December, 2004"
Anne answers...
Traditionally, you would put a commat after December. However, current usage allows for no comma between a month and the year. The important thing is to be consistent in any document you prepare.
