I don't know Scheme but I'm guessing COND works the same way as in CL. You can test the month number with COND and, within the matching clause, validate the day number like so:

Code: Select all
(cond ((= month 1) (<= day 31))
      ((= month 2) (<= day 28))
      ((= month 3) (<= day 31))

And, of course, return false if the month number is out of range.
