Days of the Week

 The week is a division of time that 
includes seven days (Sunday, Monday, 
Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday 
and Saturday). We are not sure of how
 this division came to be, but the ancient 
Hebrews were among the first to use the
 division. The ancient Egyptians named each
 day of the week for one of the planets. The
 Romans named the seven days after the 
sun, the moon,and five planets.
