    a month from today or ?

    The following is what I hear from BBC news. I am not sure about whether it is correctly heard.

    It's the US shopping craze now firmly established in British retail calendar. Black Friday offers discounts on products ranging from electrical goods, clothing, footwear to furniture in the lead up to Christmas Day, which is just a month today.

    I didn't hear any preposition between "a month" and "today". Should I add "from" here?

    Thanks!

    It's not commonly heard with "month" but it's correct.

    Next Sunday is "a week today".
    Sunday 11th December is "two weeks today" or "a fortnight today".

    On November 25th, Christmas Day is "a month today".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    A month from today works too.
