A weekend means the end of a week. That is self-evident. No entanto, what you may not have thought is that the word is originally work-related. A weekend is a period of leisure that is between two workweeks. Hoje em dia, people can work on any day, and the word ‘weekendis the same as Saturday and Sunday. Many people work on weekends.

As the concept of workdays and days off is more or less related to working from Monday to Friday as an employee in urban workplaces, a weekend is the same as a week end in many languages. In some other languages, the word for a weekend refers to the Christian background when the original word for a Sunday as the Holy day has been extended to mean the whole weekend.
