Syntax: monthdatescalendar(year, month)

Parameter: 
year: year of the calendar
month: month of the calendar

Returns: a list of the weeks in the month.

Code #1: 



Python3




# Python program to demonstrate working
# of monthdatescalendar() method
 
# importing calendar module
import calendar
 
obj = calendar.Calendar()
 
year = 2018
month = 9
 
# printing with monthdatescalendar
print(obj.monthdatescalendar(year, month))

Output: 

[[datetime.date(2018, 8, 27), datetime.date(2018, 8, 28), datetime.date(2018, 8, 29), datetime.date(2018, 8, 30), datetime.date(2018, 8, 31), datetime.date(2018, 9, 1), datetime.date(2018, 9, 2)], [datetime.date(2018, 9, 3), datetime.date(2018, 9, 4), datetime.date(2018, 9, 5), datetime.date(2018, 9, 6), datetime.date(2018, 9, 7), datetime.date(2018, 9, 8), datetime.date(2018, 9, 9)], [datetime.date(2018, 9, 10), datetime.date(2018, 9, 11), datetime.date(2018, 9, 12), datetime.date(2018, 9, 13), datetime.date(2018, 9, 14), datetime.date(2018, 9, 15), datetime.date(2018, 9, 16)], [datetime.date(2018, 9, 17), datetime.date(2018, 9, 18), datetime.date(2018, 9, 19), datetime.date(2018, 9, 20), datetime.date(2018, 9, 21), datetime.date(2018, 9, 22), datetime.date(2018, 9, 23)], [datetime.date(2018, 9, 24), datetime.date(2018, 9, 25), datetime.date(2018, 9, 26), datetime.date(2018, 9, 27), datetime.date(2018, 9, 28), datetime.date(2018, 9, 29), datetime.date(2018, 9, 30)]]

Note that weeks in the output are lists of seven datetime.date objects. 
 
Code #2: iterating the list of weeks 

Python3




# Python program to demonstrate working
# of monthdatescalendar() method
 
# importing calendar module
import calendar
 
obj = calendar.Calendar()
 
# iterating with monthdatescalendar
for day in obj.monthdatescalendar(2018, 9):
    print(day)

Output:

[datetime.date(2018, 8, 27), datetime.date(2018, 8, 28), datetime.date(2018, 8, 29), datetime.date(2018, 8, 30), datetime.date(2018, 8, 31), datetime.date(2018, 9, 1), datetime.date(2018, 9, 2)] 
[datetime.date(2018, 9, 3), datetime.date(2018, 9, 4), datetime.date(2018, 9, 5), datetime.date(2018, 9, 6), datetime.date(2018, 9, 7), datetime.date(2018, 9, 8), datetime.date(2018, 9, 9)] 
[datetime.date(2018, 9, 10), datetime.date(2018, 9, 11), datetime.date(2018, 9, 12), datetime.date(2018, 9, 13), datetime.date(2018, 9, 14), datetime.date(2018, 9, 15), datetime.date(2018, 9, 16)] 
[datetime.date(2018, 9, 17), datetime.date(2018, 9, 18), datetime.date(2018, 9, 19), datetime.date(2018, 9, 20), datetime.date(2018, 9, 21), datetime.date(2018, 9, 22), datetime.date(2018, 9, 23)] 
[datetime.date(2018, 9, 24), datetime.date(2018, 9, 25), datetime.date(2018, 9, 26), datetime.date(2018, 9, 27), datetime.date(2018, 9, 28), datetime.date(2018, 9, 29), datetime.date(2018, 9, 30)]
