    Some calendars start off the week with Sunday. Thus giving people the idea that Sunday is the beginning of the week. Personally I think Monday should be the beginning of the week. If Sunday is the beginning, then whatever happened to weekends?

    If I recall correctly, back in school I was taught that Sunday is the 1st day of the week. Why, forgot oredi.

    Aye, Sunday is the beginning of the week, as you must remember that the Roman calendar is invented by them and Sun is a holy day for them (Just the same as Fridays are holy for muslims).

    Generally, people will consider Sunday as the beginning of the week.... that's the reason why hotels' weekend rate is meant for Friday night and Saturday night. Sunday night was not consider as weekend rate.

    Nevertheless, those considering Monday as the beginning of the week also not wrong...

    Wikipedia Free Encyclopedia has a very detailed explanation on why some consider Sunday is consider as first day of the week as well as why others consider Monday as the beginning of the week.

    When I was still in school, I was taught that Sunday's the start of the week.
    But not too long ago, I heard some international organization (can't remember) proposed to fix Monday as the start.

    Sunday is the end of weekend.
    Monday is the start to working week.
    Friday is the end of working week *sigh* does this makes Friday as week"end"?

    Academicly, pls don't confuse your child. SUNDAY is the FIRST day of the week and that's what stated in the Year 1 English and Math textbooks. If you are sitting for a Malaysian govt exam, please remember this too!

    But on my h/p, I program it as such that the week starts on Monday.
    More convenient that way.

    Not to confused everyone, I follow the ISO 8601, so Monday is the first day of the week. Please "LISTEN" to me.
