Why are there only 2 days in the weekend?
Does anyone know how the 2 day weekend was established? If I could do it again, I will make weekends last 3 days.
Ha ha, Kawai. Perhaps a serious one but also, for me, a childlike one. I like it.
I do not know the answer, although I suspect that the internet will come up with something, if you put the right google words in. My speculation may be wrong but do you thing it could have something to do with religion? I mean all this talk of God taking so many days to create the Universe, and so many days to rest.
Again, we are actually running out of these two sacred days. Most people and places work and open shops more often now.
Why do you need three days? Working with a selfless attitude and being in the right job-environment should bring joy; not a need for more rest. Besides, we grow through work, motion, dynamism ...stagnancy is not good for evolution and the Universe is not designed to allow it anyway.
People retire and find that their own nature pushes them to work and so they join social clubs or become volunteers or start a cause. As long as the divine spark (Soul) is inside you, you will find that there will be an inner push or nudge, NOT to stand still. Nice question.
I guess I asked this question because Monday was coming! Lol..thanks for taking time to answer..enjoyed reading.. I guess my frustration stems from not having enough time to do things I want to do (whether it is for selfish or selfless reasons)..
Ha ha. You may love this song by my Guruji:
"My Supreme, my Supreme, My Supreme.
Do give me 48 hrs a day to accomplish,
Everything that I wish to accomplish.
Every single day." Full of meaning ...
Originally in Abrahamic religions, you had one day of rest per every seven. It was only with the Great Depression that the six day work week turned into a 5 day work week.
The only difference around the world is which days people take off. In Christian nations, it is Saturday and Sunday. For Muslims, Thursday and Friday because they won't share a weekend day with Christians or Jews.
Actually there is only one day in a weekend, Saturday is considered weekend and Sunday is week beginning. Referring to the calendar anyway.
