How do you answer to "Que es la fecha?" in Spanish?

I know that it means what is the date but do you answer:

Hoy es la __________ de ________ de dos mil ocho

or

La fecha es la __________ de _______ de dos mil ocho.

Thanks!

    Both are wrong becuase you can't say : la fecha es la 26: thats is completely wrong. It should be " La fecha es el 26".

    Wrong example:

    La fecha es la----------26------ de -------Enero------- de dos mil ocho.

    Correct Example:

    La fecha es el -----26----- de ---------Enero -------- de dos mil ocho.

    Good Luck!!

    Actually it should be "¿Cuál es la fecha?"

    Hoy es el (Day Number) de (Month) de dos mil nueve.

    For example, today (January 26, 2009) would be...

    Hoy es el 26 (veintiséis) de (enero) dos mil nueve.

    Months:

    Enero - January

    Febrero - February

    Marzo - March

    Abril - April

    Mayo - May

    Junio - June

    Julio - July

    Agosto - August

    Septiembre - September

    Octubre - October

    Noviembre - November

    Diciembre - December

    Days of the week:

    Lunes - Monday

    Martes - Tuesday

    Miércoles - Wednesday

    Jueves - Thursday

    Viernes - Friday

    Sábado - Saturday

    Domingo = Sunday

    And as much as I would love to sit here and type out all the numbers until 31, I don't think I will :P

    It is supposed to be:

    Cual es la fecha?

    And the answer to that would be:

    Hoy es el __________ de ________ de dos mil ocho

    For example, hoy es el veintiseis de enero de dos mil ocho.

    I would rather say this: Hoy es el veintiséis de enero de dos mil nueve.

    Today is January 26, 2009.

    You know, it would help a LOT if you'd give some sentences where YOU find it "an odd addition". Otherwise we're shooting sorta blind. And a possibly helpful comment on the gender thing that came up as a side issue: Some, maybe all, of the masculine -a nouns are Greek borrowings, w/ both the original gender and ending preserved.

    Both seem correct, though I'm not a native speaker.

    With the first being "today is" and the other being "the date is," they ought to both be technically correct. The first sounds more natural, though. Saying "the date is..." in any language sounds a little stuffy in comparison.

    Hoy es la 26 de enero de dos mil nueve.

    Days use "el"- not "la" (el dia)

    Hoy es el 26 de enero

    I'd probably use the first one, however the second is also gramatically correct

  • 1 decade ago

    I would use

    Hoy es la __________ de ________ de dos mil ocho
