Today is...?

Here's something that's just caught my attention, and either it hasn't been covered in class, or it has simply evaded my attention:

If you want to say "Today is this and that day", for example, "Today is the 21st of December"...

...do you say:


...or simply:


Intuitively, I'd go with "今日は十二月二十一日です。" however, I have noticed that the drills routinely use the pattern "今日は十二月二十一日。" for all dates.

So, wich one is correct? The one with or the one without "です"?

Know someone who might be able to answer this question?
