The Monday through Sunday workweek usually lasts eight working days, and the Monday through Saturday playweek typically lasts four working days. When you include in the possibility of public holidays, that overall quantity increases to 10 working days, and twelve-playing days.
However the days themselves are simply one element of the calendar, and there are lots 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 season the air is cold and the days are chilly. Every season has its own unique time associated with it, and the calendar helps us monitor all of those shifts. Any seasonal change is reflected in the calendar, and it tells us when and where to go during certain times of the year.
