Monday is the day of the week between Sunday and Tuesday. It gets its name from the Mona, the Saxon Moon god.

Monday is sometimes held to be the first day of the week (especially in modern Europe) (see ISO 8601), and sometimes the second day (a traditional view derived from ancient Jews) and still standard in the United States.
