  • According to ISO standard 8601 and ISO standard 2015, Thursday is the middle day of a week.
  • Therefore, ISO years always start with Monday.
  • ISO years can have either 52 full weeks or 53 full weeks.
  • ISO years do not have any fractional weeks during the beginning of the year or at the end of the year.

from datetime import date
   
# Calling the today() function
# to return todays date
Todays_date = date.today()
  
# Printing today's date
