  1. is a very nice day, i get to sleep in, and watch cartoons. sometimes i start my day out with just cookies and milk. i also get to play games on saturday, and ignore homework. it’s my lazy day. absolutely my own. I sometimes have friends over, but I don’t do work or homework on saturdays.

  2. Finally, the day was here. The day I was going to see my parents, for the first time. I walked towards the airport entrance, shaking with fear and excitement. What if they didn’t like me? What if they thought I was weird? I looked down at my hotdog shaped purse and wished I had left it in the car.

  4. It was Saturday but I was broke, and I was lonely, but he was rich, and had bigger arms than my father. They were warm and full of money. My cold apartment soon turned into something I could call a home.

  5. I’ve got a key in my hand. One side says “Actualizer,” on the other side there’s a message only I can read. Behind the locked door is this future that I’m slowly building. It’s not perfect. But why should it be. It’s not like anyone else is capable of shedding all their flaws.

    So, Saturday. Yep, more time will be spent whittling away at this “realizing one’s potential” thing.

  13. Saturday mornings.
    Sleeping in until the sun shines through my blinds onto my face.

    Saturday mornings.
    Watching cartoons next to my siblings, all three clad in pajamas.

    Saturday mornings.
    The freedom to roll over and hit “snooze”.

  15. It is Saturday! But I have to work. Not that I’m that bothered to be honest as I feel I need to get out of the house. I try to avoid people too much. I like to live out in the country, with only the sound of birds. Voices hurt my head. Fluorescent lights hurt my head. Delusional people hurt my head. But that is why I need to do it. I need to go. I need to practice dealing with people to help overcome my frustration with the human race. Hiding will only enable my disfunction.

  17. Saturday. The day that so many people long for; the day of freedom. Why would you love Saturday, my friends? The day of no structure. The day of danger and change. The day where you never know what to expect from yourself or others. I hate Saturday.

    By jess URL on 06.29.2012

  18. Saturday (Listeni/ˈsætərdi/ or /ˈsætərdeɪ/) is the day of the week following Friday and preceding Sunday.

    Saturday is the last (seventh) day of the week on many calendars and in conventions that consider the week as beginning on Sunday, or the sixth day of the week according to international standard ISO 8601 which was first published in 1988.

    Saturday was named no later than the 2nd century for the planet Saturn, which controlled the first hour of that day according to Vettius Valens. Its Latin name dies Saturni (“Saturn’s Day”) entered into Old English as Saeternesdaeg.

    Origins in antiquity

    The weekday heptagram, i.e. the association of the days of the seven-day week with the seven classical planets, probably dates to the Hellenistic period.[1] Between the 1st and 3rd centuries, the Roman Empire gradually replaced the eight day Roman nundinal cycle with the seven-day week. The astrological order of the days was explained by Vettius Valens and Dio Cassius (and Chaucer gave the same explanation in his Treatise on the Astrolabe). According to these authors, it was a principle of astrology that the heavenly bodies presided, in succession, over the hours of the day. The association of the weekdays with the respective deities is thus indirect, the days are named for the planets, which were in turn named for the deities.

    For both Jews and the Seventh-day Adventist, the seventh day of the week, known as Shabbat (or Sabbath for SDA), stretches from sundown Friday to sundown Saturday and is the day of rest. Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox churches distinguish between Saturday (Sabbath) and the Lord’s Day (Sunday). Quakers traditionally refer to Saturday as “Seventh Day”, eschewing the “pagan” origin of the name. In Islamic countries, Fridays are considered as the last day of the week and are holidays along with Thursdays; Saturday is called Sabt (cognate to Sabbath) and it is the first day of the week in many Arabic countries.

    In the Eastern Orthodox Church Saturdays are days on which the Theotokos (Mother of God) and All Saints are commemorated, The day is also a general day of prayer for the dead, because it was on a Saturday that Jesus lay dead in the tomb. The Octoechos contains hymns on these themes, arranged in an eight-week cycle, that are chanted on Saturdays throughout the year. At the end of services on Saturday, the dismissal begins with the words: “May Christ our True God, through the intercessions of his most-pure Mother, of the holy, glorious and right victorious Martyrs, of our reverend and God-bearing Fathers…”. For the Orthodox, Saturday—with the sole exception of Holy Saturday–is never a strict fast day. When a Saturday falls during one of the fasting seasons (Great Lent, Nativity Fast, Apostles’ Fast, Dormition Fast) the fasting rules are always lessened to an extent. The Great Feast of the Exaltation of the Cross and the Beheading of St. John the Baptist are normally observed as strict fast days, but if they fall on a Saturday or Sunday, the fast is lessened.
    Name and associations in European cultures

    In Scandinavian countries, Saturday is called lördag, “lørdag,” or laurdag, the name being derived from the old word laugr/laug (hence Icelandic name Laugardagur), meaning bath, thus Lördag equates to bath-day. This is due to the Viking practice of bathing on Saturdays.[citation needed]

    Today, Saturday is officially called Samstag in all German-speaking countries, but there it has two names in modern Standard German. Samstag is always used in Austria, Liechtenstein, and the German speaking part of Switzerland, and generally used in southern and western Germany. It derives from Old High German sambaztac, which itself derives from Greek Σάββατο, and this Greek word derives from Hebrew שבת (Shabbat). However, the current German word for Sabbath is Sabbat. The second name for Saturday in German is Sonnabend, which derives from Old High German sunnunaband, and is closely related to the Old English word sunnanæfen. It means literally “Sun eve”, i.e., “The day before Sunday”. Sonnabend is generally used in northern and eastern Germany, and was also the official name for Saturday in East Germany. In the Westphalian dialects of Low Saxon, in East Frisian Low Saxon and in the Saterland Frisian language, Saturday is called Satertag, also akin to Dutch Zaterdag, which has the same linguistic roots as the English word Saturday. In West Frisian there are also two words for Saturday. In Wood Frisian it is saterdei and in Clay Frisian it is sneon, derived from snjoen, a combination of Old Frisian sunne, meaning sun and joen, meaning eve.

    All Slavic languages derive their name for Saturday from the name for Sabbath: (Czech/Slovak/Polish/Slovene: sobota; Russian: суббота subbota, Serbian/Ukrainian субота subota).[citation needed] A similar numbering trend is also exhibited by the Baltic languages.[citation needed]

    Similarly, the Romance languages follow the Greek usage, so that their word for “Saturday” is also a variation on “Sabbath”: the Italian is sabato, the French is samedi, the Spanish and Portuguese is sábado and the Romanian is sâmbătă.

    The Celtic languages also name this day for Saturn: Irish an Satharn or dia Sathuirn, Scottish Gaelic Disathairne, Welsh dydd Sadwrn, Breton Sadorn or disadorn.
    Reception outside of Europe

    The modern Maori name for it, Rahoroi, literally means “washing-day” – a vestige of early colonized life when Māori converts would set aside time on the Saturday to wash their whites for Church on Sunday. A common alternative Māori name for Saturday is the transliteration Hatarei. For other languages, see Days of the week Planetary table.

    The Chinese-based Korean word for Saturday is 토요일 (To-Yo-Il [meaning: Earth – day]) from the Chinese character 土 meaning Earth, or Ground but more significantly makes reference to 토성 (To-Sung 土星) which means Saturn.

    In India, Saturday is Shanivar, based on Shani, the Vedic god manifested in the planet Saturn. In the Thai solar calendar of Thailand, the day is named from the Pali word for Saturn, and the color associated with Saturday is purple.
    Position in the week

    The international standard ISO 8601 sets Saturday as the sixth day of the week. The three Abrahamic religions, via their original languages, regard Saturday as the seventh day of the week (Judaism via Hebrew, Christianity via Ecclesiastical Latin, and Islam via Arabic). As a result of the Julian calendar’s international acceptance, many contemporary followers of the Abrahamic religions have associated Saturday with their “seventh day”. As a result, many refused the ISO 8601 standards and continue to use Saturday as their “seventh day”. This is concordant with the European Pagan tradition, which named the days of the week after the seven Classical planets (in order Sun, Moon, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus, Saturn), naming the first day of the week for the Sun, perceived as most important, and moving to those perceived as lesser.
    Astrology

    Saturday is associated with the planet Saturn and symbolized by that planet’s symbol ♄.
    Activities

    Saturday is a weekend day in most countries (see Workweek).
    In Nepal Saturday is last day of the week and is the only official weekly holiday.
    Saturday is the official day of rest in Israel, on which all government offices and most businesses, including some public transportation, are closed.
    Saturday is the usual day for elections in Australia and the only day in New Zealand on which elections can be held, and also the preferred election day in the U.S. state of Louisiana.
    Saturday morning is a notable television time block aimed at children while airing generally animated cartoons.
    It is common for clubs, bars and restaurants to be open later on Saturday night than on other nights. Thus “Saturday Night” has come to imply the party scene, and has lent its name to the films Saturday Night Fever, which showcased New York discotheques, Uptown Saturday Night, as well as many songs (see below).
    Saturday night is also a popular time slot for comedy shows on television. The most famous of these is Saturday Night Live, a skit show that has aired on NBC nearly every week since 1975. Other notable examples include Saturday Night Live with Howard Cosell. This practise lent its name to the film Mr. Saturday Night, starring Billy Crystal.
    In folklore, Saturday was the preferred day to hunt vampires, because on that day they were restricted to their coffins. It was also believed in the Balkans that someone born on Saturday could see a vampire when it was otherwise invisible, and that such people were particularly apt to become vampire hunters.[2][3] Accordingly, in this context, people born on Saturday were specially designated as sabbatianoí in Greek[4] and sâbotnichavi in Bulgarian;[3] the term has been rendered in English as “Sabbatarians”.[4]
    The amount of criminal activities that take place on Saturday nights has led to the expression, “Saturday night special” a pejorative slang term used in the United States and Canada for any inexpensive handgun.
    In Sweden, Saturday is usually the only day of the week when children are allowed to eat sweets, lördagsgodis. Lördag derives from lögardag; old word löga meaning to wash/clean. This tradition was introduced in the 1960s to limit dental caries, utilizing the results of the infamous Vipeholm experiments. See festivities in Sweden.

  19. It was the first time she opened her eyes, a Saturday. She could finally see all that had gone on, she finally saw him. The man that had stayed with her even when she couldn’t open her eyes. At first this made Saturday her favourite day. Soon it made Saturday her worst.

  30. Saturday, maybe things will be different. Maybe I’ll wake up today again and last night will have been a dream. Simply my unconsciousness developing new and devious ways to tortue my consciousness, with stories of friends falling in love and me simply not.

  33. Saturdays are the best. They give us a chance to recover. They allow us to relax. They allow us to have time with our friends. We can take a breath, regroup, and prepare for the week to come. We can stay out late without the worry of waking up early. Saturday nights go long and phase into Sunday mornings. Saturdays are days without care, days without worry, days of fun.

  34. See it roll in on Saturday. Sweaty palms and alienation mixed with nicotine fumes. Dead senses and dulled ambition make themselves apparent on the weekends

  35. Saturday is the day of joy peace and relaxation. It is an escape from school and work and the chaos of it all. But Saturday holds its own conflicts. Conflicts among family, friends, and loved ones. Each moment has its own happiness and sorrow. And Saturday is the day it all happens.

  36. Today is Saturday. That’s important because he gets to sleep in. But he knows there’s another reason this Saturday is important. He just wishes he could remember what that reason is. He goes into the kitchen, and sees her sitting at the table. That’s when he notices that the sky outside the window is practically black. He hasn’t just slept late; he’s slept the entire day away. And that’s when he remembers: Shit, her birthday.

  37. Saturday is by far my favorite day of the week; nothing to do, nothing to fear. The right day for a football game or watch a movie. To date that special girl or hang out with friends. Thanks Saturday
