What is a weekend?
n. 1. The end of the week, usually comprising the period from Friday evening to Monday morning, observed commonly as a period of respite from work or school; as, to visit one for a week-end; also, a house party during a week-end. Contrasted to work days."
definition from -Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary, published 1913 by C. & G. Merriam Co.
History of weekends from en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Workweek_and_weekend
In cultures with a seven-day week, the day of rest derives from the main religious tradition: Sunday (Christian), Saturday (Jewish), or Friday (Muslim).
The American concept of the weekend has its roots in labor union attempts to accommodate Jewish workers who took Saturday instead of Sunday as their Sabbath. The first five-day work week was instituted by a New England cotton mill for this reason.
In 1926 Henry Ford began shutting down his automotive factories for all of Saturday and Sunday. In 1929 the Amalgamated Clothing Workers of America was the first union to demand a five-day work week and receive it. After that, the rest of the United States slowly followed, but it wasn't until 1940 that the two-day weekend began nationwide."
People who work for themselves and in a lot of service industries tend to work on the weekends, as well as during the week.
We had a real estate office for many years. We actually lived above the office, so there was little separation between work and home. Weekends were our busy times because that is when clients and customers were home, as well as evenings.
It was not unusual to work 16 hour days, and 7 days a week.
Your health is in jeopardy working that many hours. It certainly took it's toll on us.
