    Question Today we are?

    Which of the following is acceptable:

    Today it is 1 September
    Today we are 1 September (I am not sure whether the second version is borrowed from French)

    Neither option is correct.
    Today is September 1. Today is September the first. Today is September 1st. Today is the 1st of September.
    "we" are not part of a month. You could say, "Today we are in September."

    Re: Today we are?

    "Today we are 1 September" This is a direct translation from French. As Gilnetter indicated, it's not correct English.
