Monday is the day of the week between Sunday and Tuesday.  According to the traditional Christian, Islamic, and Hebrew calendars, it is the second day of the week, and according to international standard ISO 8601 it is the first day of the week.  In the West, it is the first day of the work week, whereas in most Muslim countries and Israel, it is the second day of the work week.  The name of Monday is derived from Old English Mōnandæg and Middle English Monenday, which means "moon day".

  • Monday's child is fair of face
    • "Monday's Child," first recorded in A. E. Bray's Traditions of Devonshire vol. II (1838), pp. 287–288).
  • Monday, we held it together
But then, a Monday morning quarterback never lost a game
It's just another manic Monday
Monday you can fall apart
  • Monday, Monday, so good to me
  • Monday, Monday, can't trust that day
  • But whenever Monday comes
    You can find me crying all of the time
  • Oh, Monday, Monday, won't go away
    Monday, Monday, it's here to stay
Monday had a sad child
