his + hers: debating Sunday.

Hello Monday readers!

Let's start out by making a deal...we are not going to talk about the fact that my team lost last night. It's just going to be ugly if we go there--I'll stop speaking, ban ESPN from the tv, write a poem, drink another beer...we don't want that to happen.

Here's another debate of ours that we need help settling. {I don't want you to think that all Chad and I do is argue--I just like posting them because it fascinates me how men and women think differently. Plus, it's a healthy way to start married life.} :)

What is Sunday? Is it the beginning of the week or the end of the week?
It's confusing, right? Sunday is the end of the weekend, but every calendar has Sunday at the beginning.

Amanda: Team Start of the week. Chad: Team End of the Week{end}.

Vote Now! {Who ever has the most people side with them gets to give the other person "Hurts Donuts?" for the whole week...Chad, just in case you win, that is a joke.}

P.S. Do you still need a 2010 calendar? If I wasn't moving in May, I would already have this one hanging on my refrigerator:

Sorry to say, sissy, but I'm with Chad on this one. I firmly believe that since Sunday is considered part of the weekEND, then it is the END of the week. Plus, doesn't Monday just FEEL like the start of the week (getting back to work/school/etc.)?

I got into the habit of thinking like this when I started using a planner in college. All of the planners have a week running from Monday-Sunday, so it's stuck with me. My Google Calendar is set up online as starting on Monday, too. I wish all printed calendars went from Monday-Sunday, too.

Sunday is totally the first day of the week. In biblical terms the name "Sunday" derives from the idea of Ressurection- as in a new beginning of a week.

Boo- yah. Just won your battle for you ;)

Its sooooo the beginning of the week. I seriously thought Laura would think so too!

What's the point of having church at the end of the week? You go to church entering the new week and listening to what you should think about during the week.

Sorry, but I have to agree with Chad and Laura. It is included with the weekend, and Monday brings a new week of school, so I would consider Sunday the end of the week!

I wish all calenders did the same Laura. I would love it if they went Monday to Sunday, so much less confusing!

sorry Amanda - definitely the last day. remember on the 7th (last day of the week) day God declared it a day of rest. ;0)

You are right, Sunday is the beginning of the week. I was just going to say what LizzieBeth said.

Chad said...

Like I stated... when one thinks of the "weekend", which days does one think of? Is Saturday the last day of the weekend? Nah, it is Sunday. Therefore, Sunday by definition cannot be the first day of a new week. Monday is.

Thanks for your thoughts (especially all on Team Chad).

I'm with Team Chad. Sorry Amanda. I see Sunday as the last day of my weekend. I don't ever wake up on Sunday and think.. "Wow.. another week".. I do that on Monday mornings.

I blame calendars for this. :)

Vanessa said...

I'm a firm believer that Sunday is the end of the week, regardless of the Calendars.

hmmmm, I never thought of it any other way, just thought Monday was the beginning of a brand new week :)

thanks for stopping by, gave me a chance to discover you.
