I find a parallel between this and religion.
A person's religion is a function of one's parents, and where they were born. What is "correct", is what we were taught. There was no vision or deep-thinking on our part, as far as us acquiring a particular religion - we believe what we were given. The same as Muslims in Saudi Arabia, Buddhists in Tibet, etc.
A Bostonian will believe that Month/Day/Year is "correct".
A Londoner will believe that Day/Month/Year is "correct".
A change will occur only when someone knocks on your door (figuratively) and shows you another view (and I am not referring to Mormons or Seventh Day Adventists).
