Custom date formats in Rails

I like to keep my date formats all together, instead of having .strftime() mixed into my code. Create a file /config/initializers/custom_date_formats.rb Load your formats into Time::DATE_FORMATS
Time::DATE_FORMATS[:ymd] = "%Y-%m-%d"
Use like so:
@christmas_post.created_at.to_s(:ymd)
        # => "2009-12-25"
