a bit confused with this challenge, i need help

Challenge Task 1 of 3 Create a function named is_over_13 that takes a datetime and returns whether or not the difference between that datetime and today is 4745 days (13 years × 365 days, ignoring leap years) or more.

birthdays.py
import datetime

birthdays = [
    datetime.datetime(2012, 4, 29),
    datetime.datetime(2006, 8, 9),
    datetime.datetime(1978, 5, 16),
    datetime.datetime(1981, 8, 15),
    datetime.datetime(2001, 7, 4),
    datetime.datetime(1999, 12, 30)
]

today = datetime.datetime.today()

SOLVED; did a closer look at my code, and found where i was wrong and fixed it, here is my code

import datetime

birthdays = [ datetime.datetime(2012, 4, 29), datetime.datetime(2006, 8, 9), datetime.datetime(1978, 5, 16), datetime.datetime(1981, 8, 15), datetime.datetime(2001, 7, 4), datetime.datetime(1999, 12, 30) ]

today = datetime.datetime.today()

def is_over_13(dt): # compare total days delta = today - dt return delta.days >= 4745

def date_string(dt): return dt.strftime("%B %d")

birth_dates = map(date_string, filter(is_over_13, birthdays))

hi Malcome how are, you didnt post your code, that would have been a bit easier, for me to see where the error might be, but any how this is how i solved it, and if you are still facing any challenges let me know, good luck and happy coding

import datetime

birthdays = [ datetime.datetime(2012, 4, 29), datetime.datetime(2006, 8, 9), datetime.datetime(1978, 5, 16), datetime.datetime(1981, 8, 15), datetime.datetime(2001, 7, 4), datetime.datetime(1999, 12, 30) ]

today = datetime.datetime.today()

def is_over_13(dt): # compare total days delta = today - dt return delta.days >= 4745

def date_string(dt): return dt.strftime("%B %d")

birth_dates = map(date_string, filter(is_over_13, birthdays))
