The Phonetic Mnemonic System can be used to remember dates. All you need to do is turn the date of the event into a word using the system and then associate that word with the event. For example, suppose that your friend's birthday is on January 21. This can be represented by 1-21 or with the phonetic word 'tent.' If you visualize your friend having a birthday party inside a tent, then you will be able to remember the date.
Here are some more examples of turning dates into memorable words or phrases.
