No you go from the least amount of options to the most

Months (only 12), Day (28, 29, 30, or 31), and year (infinite)

Actually, there’s a third way, YYYY/MM/DD, used in many countries too, which I think is logical too since you go from the longest period of time (year) to the shortest (day).

DD/MM/YYYY is the most commonly used and is equally logical; however I never fully understood why MM/DD/YYYY was even a thing. It just doesn’t make any sense. Going from month to day, and back to year.

Just cause we changed stuff to be our own country doesn’t mean we are stupid.

I didn’t say it was stupid, I just said DD/MM/YYYY was more logical and easier to understand, and it’s pretty easy to see why.
