Sunnandæg is sometimes held to be the last day of the week (especially in modern Europe and South America), and sometimes the first day (a traditional view derived from ancient Jews and ancient Egyptians).
In orthodox Christian families and communities some activities are not done, e.g. working, doing something that requires somebody else to work such as buying goods or services (including the use of public transport), driving a car, gardening, washing a car, etc. Exceptions which are allowed are making use of religious services, and, usually, using electricity, and urgent medical matters.

In ancient Jewish tradition Sæternesdæg is the sabbath. Mænig geþēodu forþoliaþ ānlīelpigra ƿorda for "Sæternesdæge" and "Sabate". Eastern Orthodox churches distinguish between the sabbath (Sæternesdæg) and the Lord's day (Sunnandæg). Roman Catholics put so little emphasis on that distinction that many among them follow -- at least in colloquial language -- the Protestant practice of calling Sunnandæg the sabbath.
