Hi there, yc5 ! I received your request for assistance. Your code would ultimately produce the same result, but you have an unnecessary escape character \ in the string passed into the date function. This challenge is specifically testing the string passed in and it doesn't exactly match because of that. Removing the backslash should cause this to pass.

Hope this helps! :sparkles:

Thanks It worked!
