The Burning Question*: Does the week start on Sunday or Monday?
Let distract you from the ‘serious’ news with one of life’s REAL dilemmas. (*not really)

WE KNOW HOW you feel. It’s Monday, you have the whole week looming ahead, and you have a lot on your plate.

So do like we do here in HQ and get stuck into a serious debate on one of life’s most pressing issues.


This week: reader Aline Dejaegher emailed us with this gem: Does the week start on Monday or Sunday?

As Aline explains: “Some calendars have Sunday first, some have Monday, but really, the weekend includes Sunday, right? So technically the week should start on Monday. Or am I being too logical about this?”

Help a sister out. Does the week start on Sunday or Monday?

Poll Results:

B - Monday (3400)
C - Time is but a social construct and I refuse to conform (3110)
A - Sunday (774)
