El primero de is the traditional way of saying "the first of," but el uno de is occasionally used.

el uno de Febrero = February 1, la primera de Febrero = the first of February. (la primera because of fecha in the sentence). El primero de Febrero = the first of February.

I thought this was talking about the date of departure for a holiday but that's 'la partida'.

In the previous question l was marked wrong when I put the date before the month? Being obstinate I did same again and was marked correct?
