I saw a blog post that describes how to do this:

http://wildebeests.wordpress.com/2009/08/16/creating-highlighting-bands-in-plots/

Easiest way is to split your data into separate lists for periods you
want shaded eg. months, quarters etc.

DateListPlot[{month1,month2,month3 ...}, Filling{Filling=E2=86=92{{1=E2=86=
=92Bottom},
{1=E2=86=92Top}, {2=E2=86=92Bottom}, {2=E2=86=92Top},=E2=80=A6}]
