Growing up, Sundays were special. The family was together. The house was clean as on Saturday the home was scrubbed from top to bottom.
We were dressed in Sunday clothes, socks and shoes. My father used to cook lunch to give my mother a rest from cooking. We went for walks or outings together. We visited relatives or sometimes they visited us. I always looked forward to Sunday because it was THE special day in the week. Titania
The name comes from the Latin dies solis, meaning "sun's day": the name of a pagan Roman holiday. It is also called Dominica (Latin), the Day of God. The Romance languages, languages derived from the ancient Latin language (such as French, Spanish, and Italian), retain the root.

SCENE I. Padua. A room in BAPTISTA'S house.
I will to Venice; Sunday comes apace:
We will have rings and things and fine array;
And kiss me, Kate, we will be married o'Sunday.
