    Some people go for Sunday, some for Monday. There is no general agreement.

    Thank you, 5jj.

    Do you mean you have two kinds of calendars in which a week starts from Sunday or/and Monday in your country?

    Thanks in advance.

    Thank you, 5jj.

    I understand that most of Christians think the beginning of the week is Sunday while others are apt to think Monday comes first.

    Is this right?

    Thanks in advance.

    I don't link it to Christianity. Originally, that may have been so, but now it's any number of factors. It just depends.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Calendars printed in the USA start the weeks with Sunday.

    Those in the UK start with Monday.
