Please see this article about handling DATETIME:
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Web_Development/Web_Languages-Standards/PHP/A_201-Handling-date-and-time-in-PHP-and-MySQL.html

In particular, you might find Practical Application Number 8 to be responsive to your question.

And you can use this built-in PHP function
