Just use the datetime module:

Python 2.4.1a0 (#2, Mar  1 2005, 15:45:39)
[GCC 3.3.5 (Debian 1:3.3.5-8ubuntu2)] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
 >>> from datetime import date
 >>> date(2004, 2, 29), 2, 29)
 >>> date(2005, 2, 29)
Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
ValueError: day is out of range for month
