How to calculate number of days between two given dates?


If you have two date objects, you can just subtract them, which computes a timedelta object.

from datetime import dated0 = date(2008, 8, 18)d1 = date(2008, 9, 26)delta = d1 - d0print(delta.days)

The relevant section of the docs:https://docs.python.org/library/datetime.html.

See this answer for another example.


Using the power of datetime:

from datetime import datetimedate_format = "%m/%d/%Y"a = datetime.strptime('8/18/2008', date_format)b = datetime.strptime('9/26/2008', date_format)delta = b - aprint delta.days # that's it


Days until Christmas:

>>> import datetime>>> today = datetime.date.today()>>> someday = datetime.date(2008, 12, 25)>>> diff = someday - today>>> diff.days86
