Monday is the first day of the week, which is between Sunday and Tuesday. In the Serbian language, it was named after the simple fact that it performs on a weekly basis, ie after a week. Monday is, in fact, the first day of the week in most of Europe, Australia, parts of Africa and South America. In Asia, many languages refer to Monday as the "day of the beginning." For example, Monday is xingqi yi in Chinese, which means the first day of the week. In other parts of the world, Monday is the second day. This is a traditional view in Canada and the United States. The name of this day in Arabic, Armenian, Georgian, Greek, Hebrew and Portuguese means "second day". Modern culture usually views Monday as the beginning of the work week, because typically Monday is the day when adults return to work and children return to school after the weekend. There are exceptions here, however; in Middle Eastern countries, the start of the working week is usually Saturday (Thursday and Friday are then celebrated as weekends). In Israel, Sunday is the first day of the working week. Friday is a part-time day, and Friday night and Saturday represent the Sabbath.
