memo
  • * Both "Shabbat" and "Dominus" are Biblical words. (Ref: sábado and Shabbat both from Wikipedia)
  • In Spanish, Saturday and Sunday are the weekends, and Monday is the first day of the week.
  • In Spanish, the first letter of the days is not capitalized.

When I was learning this, I noticed that Japanese days of the week are all related to planets' names like Spanish for the first time. So interesting.
