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.

Calendars printed in the USA start the weeks with Sunday.

Those in the UK start with Monday.
