The Weekend is Created

March 7th, 321AD

Saturday was already recognized as the Sabbath for the Jews.

The Christians kept holy Sundays because it is the day of Jesus’ resurrection.

So, the following edict “given the 7th day of March, 321AD” by Emperor Constantine created the weekend:

 “On the venerable Day of the Sun let the magistrates and people residing in cities rest, and let all workshops be closed. In the country, however, persons engaged in agriculture may freely and lawfully continue their pursuits; because it often happens that another day is not so suitable for grain-sowing or for vine-planting; lest by neglecting the proper moment for such operations the bounty of heaven should be lost. “
