    Re: It's Sunday today

    IŽd dare adding that

    "It's Sunday today!"

    To me sounds more exclamative than:

    "Today is Sunday."

    Which I find more informative and more appropriate as an answer for:

    "What day is it?"

    Re: It's Sunday today

    "Hot" and "cold" are adjectives used to describe the weather, so saying "it's hot today" is correct and sounds very normal (because the sentence includes the noun that the adjective is modifying). Days of the week (Sunday, Monday, etc) are nouns, so "It's Sunday today" is awkward and redundant when phrased that way, since both "Sunday" and "today" are nouns. It is more correct to say "Today is Sunday" since there is a verb separating the two nouns. If you are answering someone's "What day is it?" or "What day is today?" query, you'd say either "Today is Sunday" or simply "It's Sunday."
