HAPPY SUNDAY MEANING, HISTORY OF SUNDAY
Sunday is the day of the week between Saturday and Monday. Sunday is a day of rest in most Western countries, as a part of the weekend.
For most observant Christians, Sunday is observed as a day of worship and rest, holding it as the Lord’s Day and the day of Christ’s resurrection. In some Muslim countries and Israel, Sunday is the first workday of the week.
According to the Hebrew calendars and traditional Christian calendars, Sunday is the first day of the week. However, according to the International Organization for Standardization ISO 8601, Sunday is the seventh and last day of the week.
WHERE IS THE WORD SUNDAY DERIVED FROM?
The name “Sunday”, the day of the Sun, is derived from Hellenistic astrology, where the seven planets, known in English as Saturn, Jupiter, Mars, the Sun, Venus, Mercury, and the Moon, each had an hour of the day assigned to them, and the planet which was regent during the first hour of any day of the week gave its name to that day.
During the 1st and 2nd centuries, the week of seven days was introduced into Rome from Egypt, and the Roman names of the planets were given to each successive day.
CAN SUNDAY BE CELEBRATED ON OTHER DAYS?
Some Christian denominations, called “Sabbatarians”, observe a Saturday Sabbath. The name “Sabbatarian” has also been claimed by Christians, especially Protestants, who believe Sunday must be observed with just the sort of rigorous abstinence from work associated with “Shabbat”.
Christians in the Seventh-day Adventist, Seventh-Day Baptist, and Church of God (Seventh-Day) denominations, as well as many Messianic Jews, have maintained the practice of abstaining from work and gathering for worship on Saturdays (sunset to sunset) as did all of the followers of God in the Bible.
Low Sunday, the first Sunday after Easter, is also known as the Octave of Easter, White Sunday, Quasimodo Sunday, Alb Sunday, Antipascha Sunday, and Divine Mercy Sunday.
Passion Sunday, the fifth Sunday of Lent is the beginning of Passiontide (since 1970 for Roman Catholics in the ordinary form of the rite, the term remains only official among the greater title of the Palm Sunday, which used to be also the “2nd Sunday of Passion tide”)
Palm Sunday is the Sunday before Easter.
Easter Sunday represents the resurrection of Christ
Gaudete Sunday is the third Sunday of Advent.
Good Shepherd Sunday is the fourth Sunday of Easter.
Laetare Sunday is the fourth Sunday of Lent.
Septuagesima, Sexagesima, and Quinquagesima Sunday are the last three Sundays before Lent. Quinquagesima (“fiftieth”), is the fiftieth day before Easter, reckoning inclusively; but Sexagesima is not the sixtieth day and Septuagesima is not the seventieth but is the sixty-fourth day prior.
The use of these terms was abandoned by the Catholic Church in the 1970 calendar reforms (the Sundays before Lent are now simply “Sundays in ordinary time” with no special status). However, their use is still continued in Lutheran tradition: for example, “Septuagesimae”.
Shavuot is the Jewish Pentecost, or ‘Festival of Weeks’. For Karaite Jews, it always falls on a Sunday.
