To understand this example, you should have the knowledge of the following Java programming topics:

Example: Check birthday and return Happy Birthday message

import java.time.LocalDate;
import java.time.Month;

public class Main {
   public static void main(String args[]) {

    // declare variables for birthday
    int birthDate = 23;
    Month birthMonth = Month.SEPTEMBER;

    // get current date
    LocalDate currentDate =;
    System.out.println("Todays Date: " + currentDate);

    // get current date and month
    int date = currentDate.getDayOfMonth();
    Month month = currentDate.getMonth();

    if(date == birthDate && month == birthMonth) {
      System.out.println("HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU !!");
    else {
      System.out.println("Today is not my birthday.");

Output 1

Todays Date: 2020-07-28

In the above example,

  • - returns the current date
  • getDayOfMonth() - returns the current day
  • getMonth() - returns the current month

Here, we have used the if...else statement to check if the current date matches the birthdate. If true, the Happy Birthday message is printed.
