    Default What date is it today?

    Hi,
    I know it is possible to say "What s the date today?"
    But is "What date is it today?" also possible?

    What day is it today? is possible;
    Is "What s the day today? possible?

    I am asking since you can say "What time is it?" but also "What s the time?"
    Thanks Rip.

    What's the date today? This sounds fine to me, but it sounds starnge with 'day'.
