Python | Pandas Series.dt.normalize

Series.dt can be used to access the values of the series as datetimelike and return several properties. Pandas Series.dt.normalize() function convert times to midnight. The time component of the date-time is converted to midnight i.e. 00:00:00. This is useful in cases, when the time does not matter. Length is unaltered. The timezones are unaffected.

Syntax: Series.dt.normalize(*args, **kwargs)

Parameter : None

Returns : DatetimeArray, DatetimeIndex or Series

Example #1: Use Series.dt.normalize() function to convert the times in the given series object to midnight.

# Creating the Series
sr = pd.Series(pd.date_range('2012-12-31 09:45', periods = 5, freq = 'M',
                            tz = 'Europe / Berlin'))
  
# Creating the index
idx = ['Day 1', 'Day 2', 'Day 3', 'Day 4', 'Day 5']
  
# set the index
sr.index = idx
  
# Print the series
print(sr)
