PHP Question

Get the last day of the current year as date

How can I get the last day (Dec 31) of the current year as a date using PHP?

I tried the following but this doesn't work:

$year = date('Y');
$yearEnd = strtotime($year . '-12-31');

What I need is a date that looks like 2014-12-31 for the current year.


PHP strtotime() uses the current date/time as a basis (so it will use this current year), and you need date() to format:

$yearEnd = date('Y-m-d', strtotime('Dec 31'));


$yearEnd = date('Y-m-d', strtotime('12/31'));
