I’m trying to change the format of the dates I’m getting from my Mongo database. Currently they look like this:
Fri Sep 16 2011 19:05:17 GMT+0900 (JST)
I’ve tried calling
.toString('yyyy-MM-dd') on them but nothing changes. I don't know if they're
Date objects or just raw strings.
I’ve tried checking the Mongoose manual and googling a bunch, but not found anything yet.

you have to create a Date object first:
var date = new Date(dateStr); // dateStr you get from mongodb
var d = date.getDate();
var m = date.getMonth()+1;
