oddly enough i don't see one here:
https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/Hive/LanguageManual+UDF#LanguageManualUDF-DateFunctions

however, you're not the only one finding something like this useful. cf.
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-6046

in the meantime it appears as though you'll have to write your own UDF or
perhaps setup a streaming job via transform() function.

Cheers,
Stephen.

PS. The transform() function is _really_ easy to use so don't be scared
off.  cf.
https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/Hive/LanguageManual+Transform
(the last example is the simplest.)
