Is the correct sentence: Saturday and Sunday is the weekend. OR Saturday and Sunday are the weekend.
''Saturday and Sunday is the weekend." is what I would say. But I won't be surprised to hear a different opinion.
The weekend is Saturday and Sunday.
Saturday and Sunday are the weekend days.
But I would say 'Jane and Robert are the finance commitee.'
I am more inclined to treat two days as one entity than I am to consider two people as one entity.
