    La fecha y los meses (the date and the months)

    In Spanish, the months (los meses) are also not capitalized. The date (la fecha) is written in the following manner: el + cardinal number + de + month. The only exception is the first of the month, which requires the use of an ordinal number (el primero/the first).
