Sunday starts the week off with church services worshiping GOD, then the work week starts the following day. My boyfriend and I just had this discussion.

The calendar week starts on Sunday. The work week starts on Monday. That's the socially accepted norm even if people don't work a Monday - Friday job.

Gives me a leg up up on all the fools who think the week starts on Monday. (Look, I'm a day ahead of you!)

Because the work week starts on Monday. Sunday is the end of a weekend, not the start of something!

Bible says the 7th day was the sabbath. Most observe Sunday as the sabbath.

First day of the work week for most, so it seems like the first day of the week.

And I wish the calendars would change the way they present the days of the week.

Sat & Sun comprise the weekend, therefore, Monday is the first day of the week.

Monday is the day I got back to work after a weekend off, so Monday it is after a hopefully restful weekend to have recharged my brain.

They fo up by Thanksgiving weekend and down by New Year's Day. We are tired of them by then, anyway.

If you don't put any holiday decorations up, you can "take them down" quickly.

January 21st the ornaments came off the tree, 22nd the lights came off, 23rd it went out the door. Haven't unplugged the porch lights yet -- they still come on for a few hours when it gets dark!
