push notification based on today's date

Please provide the following:

  1. SDK Version: expo cli --version = 3.20.9
  2. Platforms(Android/iOS/web/all): All platforms

I am following instructions on push notifications here: https://docs.expo.io/guides/push-notifications/

and I got it to work using a button; but I don’t see how this is a real world example? Using a button to send a notification? I have never experienced this. I am looking for videos or docs on a more practical application of push notifications.

I would like to send a notification to the user on a specific date. My expo app is here: https://expo.io/@dj-designs/ekadasi On github: https://github.com/dominick-designs/react-native-app-ekadasi

I want to let the user know that “Tomorrow is Ekadasi!” Kind of like “Tomorrow is your birthday!”

I can get the logic to work when tapping the button (using an if () statement.

But how can I get the same if statement to trigger based on current date?

Thank you.
