SPY ex-dividend date

  1. If I am correct SPY goes ex-dividend the third Friday of the last month of the quarter. I purchased some SPY in after-hours on Thur 12/20 and did not get the dividend. I am unable to verify the ex dividend date before I call my broker about this , if I am right about the date, why didn' t I get the dividend ? I got dividends for my long term holdings of other ETF's.
