I am trying to get a javascript to display the current date including month, weekday, date and year.
There is a function for whether it is christmas and how many days till christmas ... seems I cant even get the damn this to display. I have gone over it several times and I cant find out whats wrong. Anyhelp would be appreciated.

Code:
<html>
<head>
<title>TEST</title>
<script language="JavaScript">
<!--- Hide from non-JavaScript browsers
function XmasDays(CurrentDay) {
   var XYear=CurrentDay.getFullYear();
   var XDay=new Date("December, 25, 2003");
   XDay.setFullYear(XYear);
   var DayCount=(XDay-CurrentDay)/(1000*60*60*24);
   DayCount=Math.round(DayCount);
return DayCount;
}
function MonthTxt (MonthNumber) {
   var Month=new Array();
   Month[1]="January";
   Month[2]="February";
   Month[3]="March";
   Month[4]="April";
   Month[5]="May";
   Month[6]="June";
   Month[7]="July";
   Month[8]="August";
   Month[9]="September";
   Month[10]="October";
   Month[11]="November";
   Month[12]="December";
return Month[MonthNumber];
 }
 function WeekDayTxt(WeekDayNumber) {
 var WeekDay=new array();
 WeekDay[1]="Sunday";
 WeekDay[2]="Monday";
 WeekDay[3]="Tuesday";
 WeekDay[4]="Wednesday";
 WeekDay[5]="Thursday";
 WeekDay[6]="Friday";
 WeekDay[7]="Saturday";
 return WeekDay[WeekDayNumber];
 }

	  var ThisMonth=Now.getMonth()+1;
	  var ThisYear=Now.getFullYear();
	  var DaysLeft=XmasDays(Now);
	  var MonthName=MonthTxt(ThisMonth);
	  var WeekDayName=WeekDayTxt(WeekDay);
	  
		if (DaysLeft > 1) {
 document.write(WeekDayName+","+MonthName +" "+ThisDay+"<br>");
 
	  } if (DaysLeft == 1) {
 document.write ("Last day for Christmas shopping");
 
	  } else {
 document.write ("Happy Holidays from North Pole Novelties");
 }

Just adapt what I have pasted here for your document.

<HTML>
<TITLE>Xmas Count Down</TITLE>
<BODY>

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">

<!-- Begin
var date = new Date("December 25, 2004");
var description = "Xmas";
var now = new Date();
var diff = date.getTime() - now.getTime();
var days = Math.floor(diff / (1000 * 60 * 60 * 24));
document.write("<center><h3>")
if (days > 1) {
document.write(days + " days until " + description);
}
else if (days == 1) {
document.write("Only two days until " + description);
}
else if (days == 0) {
document.write("Tomorrow is " + description);
}
else {
document.write("It's" + description + "!");
document.write("</h3></center>");
}
// End -->
</script>
<!-- END OF SCRIPT -->


</body>
</html>

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
