def test_current_date(current_date):
    assert current_date == date(2017, 5, 21)

@pytest.mark.freeze_time
def test_changing_date(current_date, freezer):
    freezer.move_to('2017-05-20')
    assert current_date == date(2017, 5, 20)
    freezer.move_to('2017-05-21')
    assert current_date == date(2017, 5, 21)
