datetime.date(2016, 4, 30), datetime.date(2016, 5, 1)], [datetime.date(2016, 5, 2), datetime.date(2016, 5, 3),
datetime.date(2016, 5, 4), datetime.date(2016, 5, 5), datetime.date(2016, 5, 6), datetime.date(2016, 5, 7), datetime.date(2016, 5, 8)],
[datetime.date(2016, 5, 9), datetime.date(2016, 5, 10), datetime.date(2016, 5, 11), datetime.date(2016, 5, 12), datetime.date(2016,
5, 13), datetime.date(2016, 5, 14), datetime.date(2016, 5, 15)], [datetime.date(2016, 5, 16), datetime.date(2016,5, 17),
datetime.date(2016, 5, 18), datetime.date(2016, 5, 19), datetime.date(2016, 5, 20), datetime.date(2016, 5, 21), datetime.date(2016, 5, 22)],
[datetime.date(2016, 5, 23), datetime.date(2016, 5, 24), datetime.date(2016, 5, 25), datetime.date(2016, 5, 26),
datetime.date(2016, 5, 27), datetime.date(2016, 5, 28), datetime.date(2016, 5, 29)], [datetime.date(2016, 5, 30), datetime.date(2016, 5, 31),
datetime.date(2016, 6, 1), datetime.date(2016, 6, 2), datetime.date(2016, 6, 3), datetime.date(2016, 6, 4),
datetime.date(2016, 6, 5)]]

Note: datetime.date

A date object represents a date (year, month and day) in an idealized calendar, the current Gregorian calendar indefinitely extended in both directions. January 1 of year 1 is called day number 1, January 2 of year 1 is called day number 2, and so on. This matches the definition of the “proleptic Gregorian” calendar in Dershowitz and Reingold’s book Calendrical Calculations, where it’s the base calendar for all computations.

Python: Tips of the Day

What is the difference between Python's list methods append and extend?

append: Appends object at the end.

x = [1, 2, 3]
x.append([4, 5])
print (x)

Output:

[1, 2, 3, [4, 5]]

extend: Extends list by appending elements from the iterable.

x = [1, 2, 3]
x.extend([4, 5])
print (x)

Output:

[1, 2, 3, 4, 5]
