I know right? I always view Monday as the beginning on the week. xD We should be like the Hebrews and count it as a next day right at sundown. xD

Sunday is considered the start of the week here; however, in several other countries Monday is. Either way makes sense, but I grew up with the first-mentioned. So yeah.

I don't find it weird. :P For example, I always saw it like if Monday-Friday were books with Saturday and Sunday being the bookends.

Though my work week is really weird, it starts on Saturday and ends with Friday. I've never understood that, but I bet there is a reason.

Here in Brazil standard is week ends on Sunday,but I believe it starts on it because Monday's literal translation would be second - day(actually second - fair but let's use day for a while) so ...

It is, however, commonly accepted that Sunday is the first day of the week. At least, on a lot of calendars anyway.

Sunday is traditionally the first day of the week, due to Hebrew Calendars having the Sabbath on the last day of the week, thus Saturday. Ergo, Sunday is the first day of the new week leading up to the next Sabbath.

With the coming of modern-day secularism, and the 5 day workweek, it left us with the first day of the week falling in our free weekends. So calender makers agreed to have Mondays as the new first day.

Sunday is the beginning of my calendar week and Monday is the beginning of my school week. In any case Sunday is at the opposite END of the week from Saturday, so both being weekENDs could still make sense.
