    Neither one of you have a calendar? That day that is before all of the rest of them is the 1st day of the week…

    Hint: It’s not Monday

    I’m with @deetroitwhat I feel like Sunday is still my weekend since I don’t work so Monday when I go back to work is the first day of the week for me!

    Technicly Sunday is the first day of the week. But with most people being off on saturdays and sundays, its easy to see why people would think Monday is the beggining of the week.

    Sunday is the first day of the week. Yes, people feel like Monday is because its when you go back to work or school but fact is, Sunday is the first day of the week.

    Is one of you foreign? The only place I’ve seen calendars that start on Monday and not Sunday is in Europe. I say Sunday because that is when all of the calendars I’ve ever used begin the week, and that’s how I learned it.

    Sunday. I go by how calendars print the week, so technically Sunday is the first day of the week.

    Sunday since most companys count that as its offical start of a new pay week even if they dont work the weekends
