The Monday through Sunday workweek generally lasts eight working days, and the Monday through Saturday playweek usually lasts 4 working days. When you include in the possibility of public holidays, that total amount increases to ten working days, and twelve-playing days.
The days themselves are just one element of the calendar, and there are plenty of others. The months of the calendar represent different seasons, and the time between each of those months gives us the seasonal cycle. At the start of spring, the temperature is high and the days are warm, while at the end of winter the air is cold and the days are chilly. Every season has its own unique time connected with it, and the calendar helps us keep track of all of those shifts. Any seasonal change is reflected in the calendar, and it informs us when and where to go throughout particular times of the year.
