I suppose it is what you want it to be, either Sunday or Monday depending on what you believe in.




6.6 What is the first day of the week?

The Bible clearly makes Saturday (the Sabbath) the last day of the week. Therefore it is common Jewish and Christian practice to regard Sunday as the first day of the week (as is also evident from the Portuguese names for the week days mentioned in section 6.2 (#sec-weekdays)). However, the fact that, for example, Russian uses the name ``second'' for Tuesday, indicates that some nations regard Monday as the first day.

In international standard ISO-8601 the International Organization for Standardization has decreed that Monday shall be the first day of the week.



Clear as mud.:)

I prefer Sunday as do most calendars. I think.:blink:

Those of us who believe in the concept of a "weekend" will note that it contains 2 days. Those being Saturday and Sunday.

This being the case, that Sunday is part of the weekend, it is difficult to see how it is the first day of the week.

However non-believers (aweekendists if you will) may see this differently

In fact you could say the weekend argument has weakened the alternative argument somewhat. :huh:

Only if your name is bigboab, who I believe is an aweekendist, so he is unlikely to.

Let us however illustrate it, by the use of a short play.



Playtime (recess) Friday afternoon. There is a general clamour in the background, a young girls screams, but in joy not in fear.

Tommy - Yo Bob Dude, respect.

Bob - Yo Tommy, my homeboy.

Tommy - Any plans for t'weekend.

Bob - Yup, it's puntsphere on Saturday then up to me nans for tea on Sunday.

The light dims to the sound of further joyful screams, a pigtail is being pulled.



I think that pretty much wraps this discussion up.

Exactly, what does "end" mean in "weekend"? Beginnig?

Monday-Moon
Tuesday-Mars
Wednesday-Mercury
Thursday-Jupiter
Friday-Venus
Saturday-Saturn
Sunday-Sun

As we all know the Moon is the smallest so it has to be the first one ??

FFS, I have already illustrated to any reasonable person that Monday is the first day of the week.

Accept it and move on.

In my experience the following applies to people who are payed weekly.

Your 'clocking in' card starts on a Sunday and ends on the Saturday.

If you work 'overtime' on a Saturday' you are not paid for that Saturday till the Friday 6 days later.

If you work 'overtime' on a Sunday you are not paid for that Sunday till the Friday 13 days later.

I should think that the above applies to working places where the week starts on a Sunday. Unless they bought their clock cards in a 'job lot' and had to change their working week accordingly.:lol:
