// put the date into a variable 
$date = "02-21-2010"; 
 
// change the date to a UNIX timestamp
$timestamp = strtotime($date); 
 
// transform the timestamp back to a date
// this will return "2010-02-21"
$date = date("Y-m-d",$timestamp); 
 
// this will return "February 21st, 2010"
$date = date("F jS, Y",$timestamp); 
 
// this will return "Feb 21, 2010"
$date = date("M j, Y",$timestamp);
