The Days of the Week

  (The days of the week are:)

Just for grins, see an explanation of how the Greek phrase above was constructed.

Sunday
Monday
Tuesday
Wednesday
Thursday
Friday
Saturday

Sunday is the first day, and Saturday the last. This is why the words for Monday through Friday bear a strong resemblance to the numbers 2 through 5. (Review the numbers section.) This is not a coincidence.

If you’re like me, and always think of weeks as starting on Monday, you’ll have to take a little extra thinking time, or you’ll be off-by-one every time you make an appointment!

Extra note: All of the days of the week are feminine except for

which is neuter.
