    Hi there!

    I know there are many ways to express dates in English.

    The way I use is: I did it on February 9th. This seems to me an American English usage, which I'm happy to follow.

    My doubt is: when I omit the month and only say the day. What should I say?

    Should I say: I did it on 9th; is it complete and correct?

    No, say, "I did it on the 9th"

    Americans might also say "I did it on the 9th" if everyone knew what month is meant. "Our bridge game is on the 23rd, isn't it?" is natural in AE.
