- Changing the day of Shabbos? 1 answer
Some countries do adopt weeks starting in Monday, whereas the weekend (Saturday followed by Sunday) is at the end of the week, making Sunday the seventh day.
In Brazil, where I am from, weeks start at Sunday and, since working days (monday-friday) are called as ordinary numbers (segunda-feira/second 'feria' (latim)/monday, etc), it would not make sense to adopt a week starting in monday (since monday is called 'second').
However it only exists in Portuguese speaking countries (correct me if I am wrong). In many countries, weeks start in monday and it makes perfect sense for them.
Trying to explain what Sabbath is to a Christian friend from Indonesia (I am Seventh-Day Adventist), I wasn't understood when I said that Sabbath is celebrated on Saturday, the seventh day. "But the seventh day is Sunday", I heard.
How does Sabbath get celebrated on countries where week starts in Monday? How to explain Sabbath as seventh day to someone from these countries?
