    @Wonderstruck:  I actually have calendars where the weekend is grouped together. They usually put it at the end of the week (though I believe I’ve also seen it done where it’s at the beginning.) Having the weekend grouped together (either at the beginning or end) is one of several requirements I have of any calendar or agenda I buy.

    So, if you’re basing this off calendars, there’s definitely room for a difference of opinion.

    I read the question be more ‘What do you consider the first day of the week to be?”

    Not what is literally the first day of the week…

    Yes, a week is Sunday-Saturday, but for me, a new week starts on Monday.

    I believe technically it is Sunday.

    But I tend to consider Monday as the start of a new week for me (and I’ve seen calendars that support both versions).

    My calendar (Outlook – work), iPhone and printed personal diary all start each week on a Monday!

    Technically, it’s Sunday.  Practically, it’s Monday.

    I really depends on where you live. Some places say Sunday on the calenders, and others say Monday. I think it should be Monday but here in the states it’s Sunday.

    In the US, Sunday. In Europe, Monday.

    @joya_aspera:  Huh, weird, I’ve never seen one that started on a Monday! I guess probably just because of the work week thing?

    Wow, I am shocked! Maybe this is an American thing, because for me Monday is definitely the start of the week! I have seen calenders both ways, but for me, it’s called the Week’End’ for a reason!

    Monday for me.

    Some snarky responses in here, though. Cool it.

    Google Calendar lets you choose for yourself if your week starts on Sunday or Monday, so I think you’re both right! 

    Technically, it’s Sunday but for me it’s totally Monday.

    The calendar should really put Monday first. But technically, it’s Sunday.  Stupid.
