Buona Domenica

I got these gorgeous Spring flowers today. I love flowers!



Buona Domenica means Happy Sunday. I find it odd that people say this from Friday onwards. What about Saturday? Buon Saturday? Saturday is normally better than Sunday IMO but some seem to over look it and go straight to Sunday. I could understand it if it is said by someone who works on Saturday I suppose.

Another confusing phrase: "Buon lavoro" Good work? Happy work? mmmm A contradiction in terms? If you have a really fun job which isn't really like work it could be good perhaps...

Bellissimi! Yeah, I'm with you on the "good" wishes...Sunday's weird, but work is even weirder. I like to think of it as a wish that all goes well at work, but translating it sure ain't easy.

I think daffodils are so prety! Buona domenica to you too.

Those are gorgeous! When you run out, there's a whole bunch more coming up too early in my garden. Got to link you to my blog site. Will do.

I love daffodils as well. They're my country's national flower ha ha.

You read my mind... just yesterday I was questioning this whole Buona Domenica thing. Why is Sunday so special?

The first time I ever heard buon lavoro it was after an English lesson, when I was on my way to another one. I thought the student was saying I had done a good job with the lesson, but he was saying have a good rest of the work day. Mah!
