    I got in to an interesting discussion, and we both differ on this. I never even considered it could be the other day.

    I know it's different around the world, but was wondering what you were taught and consider in Australia to be the first day of the week?

    Yes is not an answer in this.

    I think for me, Monday is usually the first day of week because relaxation is at the end of a tough week.

    Monday.

    I think it has to do with education and work. Some time ago I started my four day working week on a wednesday, so to me it felt like the start of the week was a wednesday. But apart from that it's always been a monday.

    Probably Monday. Or Saturday. Either way, the weekend is one part of the week and the workdays another part.
    Saturday and Sunday don't have any great difference, other than Sunday Night Terrors and ironing; like they might for deeply Christian people where the time in church could be seen as kick-starting the week.

    Hi, what are you planning on doing this weekstartandend?

    Yes that sounded stupid, didn't it?

    So the answer is Monday.

    Monday without a doubt
    During my brief time in the Middle East, our school week was Saturday to Wednesday, so for those few months , it was Saturday to me ( dad worked 6 days a week, with just Fridays off, so it was the same for him too)

    Nailed it. Saturday and Sunday is the weekend, Monday the start of the week. 2 days rest after destroying your soul for 5 days straight

    It's all relative really.

    I mean there's actually no such thing in reality as a week, or a month, or a year.....These are just arbitrary, abstract human constructions, designed to measure the change & motion of 2 objects, relative to each other.

    The Alpha & Omega is merely prefaced upon our journey from the womb to the tomb.....Temporal measurement & the notion of finitude are products of our mortality.

    Existing within nice arbitrarily set human abstracted concepts & conventions, just gives us a buffer & defence against the real & perilous nature of our existence.

    The extent & degree to which we exist in the conceptual world in our heads, is equal to our alienation from the real world & our true visceral selves.

    Have a loverly day.
