The word ”WEEKEND” is a formed from two words, ”WEEK” which means the continuous sequence of the seven days, and ”END” signifying termination or finality of something. So ”WEEKEND” can simply be understood as the final or the last day in the continuous sequence of the seven days ; Monday, Teusday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
The order of the days or the beginning and the end of the week depends on different traditions. In the Bible, in the Gospel of John 20:1, Luke 24:1-2, Sunday is the first day of the week while Saturday marks the WEEKEND, it is called the ”Sabbat day”. In the igbo tradition, there are four days in a week they are as follows; Eke, Orie, Afo and Nkwo. The forth day is a day of complete rest for the igbo man. So with the example mentioned, it means that we can also have different traditions regarding the days of the week.
Some people always feel excited whenever the weekend approaches, because they will have much time to spend with their lovely ones and for themselves. Others also benefit from this given time to work hard and prepare for the following week. But not withstanding on how one spends his or her weekend, we would say that the weekend is an extra day given to everyone.
Working the whole week could be really stressful for the health. It will be best if a day is marked out for personal recreation or rest, even if it’s not done on weekends, any other day of the week can be selected, because our todays world has given us a new program that makes it difficult for every one to have the same life style.
So our today’s question is:
Will work life be boring without weekend? It is true that sometimes we need to work harder and forget about the weekend. You can share with us in the comment section.
