Is this date query possible?

 11:25 am on Jan 5, 2012 (gmt 0)

I'd like to have users input a 'start date' for a holiday. I'd like to show results for 2 days either side of the day they searched for. BUT prioritize dates matching their actual searched date first. Is this possible with one query?

This is probably in error by likely the right direction.

// Cleanse and store date in YYYY-MM-DD format "$date"

select * from table where datefield >= date_sub('$date', interval 2 day) and datefield <= date_add('$date', interval 2 day) order by datefield = '$date' desc, datefield desc;

The order by may need some work, but the idea is to use an expression in the first half of the clasue

Thank you! Never thought of doing it that way.

Much appreciated.
