Python program to find birthdate on the same day you were born

Write a program to find birthdates till a given year on the same day you were born. Let the input be of the format: YYYY-MM-DD

Examples:

Input: 1996-11-12
Output: [‘1996-11-12’, ‘2002-11-12’, ‘2013-11-12’, ‘2019-11-12’, ‘2024-11-12’, ‘2030-11-12’, ‘2041-11-12’, ‘2047-11-12’]

Input: 1992-11-2
Output: [‘1992-11-2’, ‘1998-11-2’, ‘2009-11-2’, ‘2015-11-2’, ‘2020-11-2’, ‘2026-11-2’, ‘2037-11-2’, ‘2043-11-2’, ‘2048-11-2’]

Recommended: Please try your approach on {IDE} first, before moving on to the solution.

Functions created:



  • split_date(birthdate): This function splits the date given by user into year, month and day.
  • get_birthday(birthdate): This function is used to return the day of the week the user was born.
  • true_birthdays(birthdate): This function is used to return a list of dates having the same week day the user was born.

To find the birthdates having the same day the user was born above three methods will help us. Firstly, The user will enter the date and split_date() function will split the date into year, month and day. Then the function get_birthday() will be used to find weekday for that particular date. Finally, the true_birthdays() function will be used to find the list of all the dates having the same weekday. Inside this function, a for loop will be iterating from birth year to a specific year and will check if the birthdate in any particular year having the same weekday or not. If the weekday is same then that date will be added to the list of dates.

Below is the implementation.

    # get the year from birthday
    year = birthdate[:4].split('-')
  
    # convert list to string   
    year = listToString(year)
  
    # get the weekday you are born
    d_day = get_birthday(birthdate) 
  
    # list of true birthdate[birthday that have same 
    # weekday as the day you were born]    
    true_BD = [] 
      
    j = 0

        new_d_day = get_birthday(new_birthday)

        # as the day you were born
        if d_day == new_d_day: 
  
        # add to the list of true birthdate
            true_BD.append(new_birthday)
        else:
            pass
        j += 1
  
    return true_BD
  
  
def main():
  
    # Get the birth date
    birthdate = "1996-11-12"
  
    # year_limit = input("search limit from your birthday- ")
    dates = true_birthdays(birthdate)  
      
    print(dates)
