Birth dates are normally written in some form of numeric combination. However, there are times when you may need to write a birth date out in words. Instances in which this is most likely to occur are formal types of writing, such as invitations and announcements. Writing a birth date out in words takes a little longer than writing it in numbers, but it is a simple process that you can complete quite easily.
