You read that right. In Egypt, Friday is the holy day, so the week ends with Thursday. Friday and Saturday are the weekend. Sunday = Monday.
Did you get that?
Yeah, me neither.
It is truly strange to wrap your head around a change in the days of the week. It's kinda like if suddenly the days were only 20 hours. Bizarre.
That said, I'm pretty glad it's pseudo-Friday today. Piper had her first week at school, and her first week ever in an 8am-3pm program. My baby is TIRED! Just getting her to walk home is tough. Add in multiple flights of stairs in our walkup apartment, and it's all she can do to stay awake until dinner.
Anyway, thought I'd drop a bomb on you today.
Thursday = Friday. Friday=Sunday. Saturday = Saturday. Sunday = Monday. Protestant Church services are held on Fridays as well. Sunday School is called Friday School.
You may now go back to your previously scheduled programming. :)
Have a great weekend!!
