Hey there,

For the most part, you have it. Everything is syntactically correct... except the instructions did not say to create a new variable to hold the date. The instructions specifically say: "Use a SINGLE date function to display today's date in the message.".

So, just delete the variable declaration and echo out the date directly and the task will pass.

A good thing to remember is that Challenge instructions are always very specific and need to be followed exactly. If you do something that wasn't asked for, misspell a word, miss a punctuation mark, etc... you'll more that likely to receive the Bummer even though the code is syntactically correct. So, just watch the instructions.

Otherwise, Nice work! :) :dizzy:
