The Monday through Sunday workweek normally lasts 8 working days, and the Monday through Saturday playweek generally lasts four working days. When you include in the possibility of public holidays, that overall amount increases to ten working days, and twelve-playing days.
However the days themselves are just one aspect of the calendar, and there are lots of others. The months of the calendar represent various seasons, and the time between each of those months provides 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 modification is shown in the calendar, and it informs us when and where to go during particular times of the year.
