I want to find out the following:

given a date (`datetime`

object), what is the corresponding day of the week?

For instance, Sunday is the first day, Monday: second day.. and so on

And then if the input is something like today's date.

## Example

```
>>> today = datetime.datetime(2017, 10, 20)
>>> today.get_weekday() # what I look for
```

The output is maybe `6`

(since it's Friday)

## Best Solution

Use

`weekday()`
