For a content type, I need a field holding the value of a certain date in history. The content type will be used to hold some historic events and when the current date matches (September 17th, for example) the node will be displayed.
I know that the date module can handle such things but it is quite comprehensive and I will not be using calendars or event content types. All I need is to hold a date value and compare its day and month part with the current date's.
Is there a simple solution?
