It's almost Sunday! Are you ready for the weekend? If you're like most people, you're probably looking forward to a relaxing day off. But before you can enjoy your Sunday, there's still the matter of getting through the workweek.
To help you make it to the weekend, we've put together a Sunday countdown. This handy little tool will tell you how many days, hours, minutes, and seconds are left until Sunday. So whether you're at work or play, you can always know exactly how long it will be until your next day of rest.
How Did Sunday Get Its Name?
The day we know as Sunday has been around since the beginning of time. But it wasn't always called Sunday. In fact, the name Sunday is a relatively recent invention. The word Sunday comes from the Old English word “sunnandæg,” which means "day of the sun."
It makes sense that the day of the week named after the Sun would be a day of rest and worship. Interestingly, some cultures still consider the Sun to be a god. For example, in Japan, there is a Shinto festival called Matsuri, which celebrates the Sun goddess, Amaterasu.
So, the next time you enjoy a sunny Sunday, remember that you are taking part in an ancient tradition that has its roots in humanity's worship of the Sun.
