Hi there! This is a bit of a peculiar case in that the checker is checking for the string you're passing into the date function. You've passed in a string that results in the correct output, but the backslash is not needed to escape the comma. It has no effect on the output whatsoever. So while the output is correct, the string passed into the date function is not what was expected.

Removing the backslash should cause this to pass the challenge. Hope this helps! :sparkles:
