I am trying to format the month portion of a date that I am trying to
pull from MySQL to be placed into a drop down menu to modify the date.
I have tried several ways and none seem to be working.  

I am pulling the date out of MySQL with: 
$sDate = explode("-", $row_events['Sdate']);

And then attempting to insert each portion of the array into a drop down
menu with:
echo "<select name=Smonth>";
echo "<option selected>$sDate[1]</option>";
which is where I am running into the problem.  I pull out the month as 2
digit numeric 01, 02, 03 etc., but I want it displayed as January,
February, March, etc.,

I have tried the following with no success:

I would use MySQL to format the date, but I have three date fields to
modify and it would be easier to do it in PHP

Any pointers would be appreciated.
