Online poll reveals that Saturdays are the 'favourite day of the week'

Happy weekend all!

An engaged online poll created by one of our users on www.votetrends.com reveals that Saturday is picked as the favourite day of the week. Poll votes for Saturday ranked higher than our beloved TGI Friday's.

Wikipedia describes Saturdays as:

The day of the week following Friday and preceding Sunday. Saturday is the seventh and therefore last day of the week according to many commonly used calendars, but it is the second-to-last (sixth) day of the week according to ISO 8601. Its Latin name dies Saturni ("Saturn's Day") entered into Old English as Saeternesdaeg. Saturday was named no later than the 2nd century for the planet Saturn, which controlled the first hour of that day according to Vettius Valens. Prior to that, the old English name was sunnanæfen ("sun"+"eve").

In honor of this astute observation, we thought that we would celebrate the joys of Saturdays for all the weekend-warriors out there! Here's a list of things that we love so much that refer to this first holiday of the week:
