Right mouse click on time/date display.

Properties/Preferences (I don't know your language settings).

And you have many options (colours, font etc.)

I think you are referring to the large clock on the desktop?

You can adjust that by opening the menu and typing Conky in the search field.

Now I don't know which it is (I never use it, hence), but I wager the Conky theme manager is the one you need.

Oh, it could be Conky. I do not use it, so I thought automatically about time/date on panel.

Right click do nothing. Is the white time and light green date. I can live with the white time, but the light green date is barely visible on most backgrounds I like.
I will try the Conky. Thanks.

I guess the date/time is too far out of sync.
Run "MX Time Settings" / "MX Zeiteinstellungen" to adjust time accordingly.:
looks like this:
