The origin and customs of each day

Written by Olivia

Depending on the culture, the week begins on Sunday (after the Sabbath) or Monday. In Western countries, a standard (ISO 8601) defines Monday as the first day of the week. Whether it's observation-based customs or pure superstitions, many traditions attribute value or influence to each day of the week, often in relation to the planet that governs it. Here you can discover the meaning of each day, the traditions that are attached to it and the advice of our ancestors to make the most of each day's potential.
