Hi FreeFallWall<br />
Was not a totally irrelevant comment to me. Nice to hear from you. The fact Sundays are still the day of the week without work shows the power The Sun has over us always.<br />

Cool! Sundays seem to be so sunny and bright. Hehe. Maybe the freedom from boring routine makes them so?<br />
*totally irrelevent comment, lol*<br />
Thanks for the info though koyptakh, i didn't know that. :)

Hi unintended<br />
Religions build on the beliefs of previous ones. Christian Churches are often built on the ruins of older religious sites. Ancient religions were based on nature and understanding the Sun and Moon Gods were vitally important to harvest success. Priests were primarily time keepers of seasons and knew when to plant. Anyway Sunday would have been a celebration of the most important feature of Ancient Life so would be the most important day of the week - as it is now - but called The Lord's Day by Christians. Modern Sunday is built on the ruins of the old religions.<br />

Hi unintended<br />
Sunday is a day dedicated to The Sun and Monday to The Moon. Is just living history! We are surrounded by meanings which we do not know about. <br />
