Description: A PHP script that retrieves date and time information and spits out a tailored greeting. The script outputs a greeting based on most common United States holidays and defaults to a generic "Good morning/afternoon/evening" on non-holidays.



<?php

// Set date/time variables.
$time=getdate();
$hour=$time['hours'];
$day=$time['mday'];
$month=$time['mon'];
$wday=$time['wday'];
$wdnum=(int)(($day+6)/7);
if (strlen($month)==1){$mm="0".$month;}
else {$mm=$month;}
if (strlen($day)==1){$dd="0".$day;}
else {$dd=$day;}
$mmdd=$mm.$dd;
$nwmm=$wdnum.$wday.$mm;

// Check for holidays with set dates.
switch ($mmdd){
case "0101":
case "1231":
$greet="Happy New Year";
break;
