Comparing two dates

By using strtotime we can compare two dates and return the highest ( or lowest ) date of them. Here is the code
$dt1='25-12-2015'; // First Date one in a variable
$dt2='01-07-2016'; // Second Date in a variable

$dt11=strtotime($dt1); // Converting first date to timestamp
$dt22=strtotime($dt2); // Converting second date to timestamp

if($dt11 > $dt22){
$dt=$dt1;
}else{
$dt=$dt2;
}
echo "Highest  Date : $dt ";
Output is here
Highest Date : 01-07-2016
