Random Date Generation in Python

Chris LaGreca spits out some dates:

I often work with time series data and find it useful to have a variety of ways to randomly generate dates. This particular example is great for evenly distributed date partitions. Running the script below with the default arguments will output a list of random dates, one for each month of the year.

It looks like this is generating based off of a uniform distribution, which probably makes the most sense for “give me a day of the month” data generation.
