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.
>>> today = datetime.datetime(2017, 10, 20)
>>> today.get_weekday() # what I look for
The output is maybe 6 (since its Friday)
