In Python, we can instatiate date objects using the date constructor. A date object represents a date(year, month, day) in the current Gregorian calendar.

Examples

Creating a date object

The constructor for a date object is date(year, month, day):

from datetime import date
d = date(2020,4,3)
print(d)
2020-04-03

Getting date from a date string

Python's date.fromisoformat(~) method converts a date string in YYYY-MM-DD format to a date object.

from datetime import date

date = date.fromisoformat('2020-05-20')
print(date)
print(type(date))
2020-05-20
<class 'datetime.date'>

We can see the string '2020-05-20' has now been converted to a date object.
