Implementation 1 : Displaying Month 
In the program below, we import the calendar module. The built-in function month() inside the module takes in the year and the month and displays the calendar for that month of the year.
 

Python




# Python program to display calendar of
# given month of the year
 
# import module
import calendar
 
yy = 2017
mm = 11
 
# display the calendar
print(calendar.month(yy, mm))

Output: 
 

    November 2017
Mo Tu We Th Fr Sa Su
       1  2  3  4  5
 6  7  8  9 10 11 12
13 14 15 16 17 18 19
20 21 22 23 24 25 26
27 28 29 30

OR you can directly run 
 

 

from command line (CMD in windows or TERMINAL in Linux ) for displaying a month of a year
for example : 
 

C:\Users\chatu\Desktop>python -m calendar 2019 7
     July 2019
Mo Tu We Th Fr Sa Su
 1  2  3  4  5  6  7
 8  9 10 11 12 13 14
15 16 17 18 19 20 21
22 23 24 25 26 27 28
29 30 31
