Day of all the week the best,
Emblem of eternal rest.

Greetings for the weekend


take a moment to reflect on all you’ve accomplished this week. Spend a little part of your weekend appreciating all that you done and be proud of yourself. I certainly am.



My perfect weekend means: relaxing Friday after work, watching a movie and having a drink, sleeping in Saturday, doing something in the afternoon and writing to all the people I like in the evening. On Sundays I take care of the household, do some sports, read and paint.

What does your perfect weekend look like?


The Cotter’s Saturday Night

My lov’d, much honour’d, much respected friend!
No mercenary bard his homage pays;
With honest pride, I scorn each selfish end,
My dearest meed, a friend’s esteem and praise:
To you I sing, in simple Scottish lays,
The lowly train in life’s sequester’d scene;
The native feelings strong, the guileless ways;
What Aiken in a cottage would have been;
Ah! tho’ his worth unknown, far happier there I ween!

(Robert Burns)


Weekend means free time

Have a great weekend – and if you have to work today, I’ll try again tomorrow.


The only thing faster than light is the weekend. So take good care, it’ll be over sooner than you think. Enjoy it and I’ll see you next week.

And remember, calories aren’t counted on the weekend.


Weekend for me means sleeping until I’m hungry and eating until I’m tired again.

I wish you a few relaxing days and a nice break from the daily work routine.


"It is better to repent a sin than regret the loss of a pleasure."

(Oscar Wilde)

Keep these words in mind throughout the weekend when you’re wondering whether or not you can indulge in another glass of wine or a few more chips. I’m going to really enjoy this weekend.

Have a great evening and an enjoyable weekend.

Some Facts about the Weekend

Things to know about the weekend

Below you’ll learn everything you need to know about the weekend. We explain where the term comes from and what it means, have information on the history of the weekend and tell you something about its meaning.

Afterwards you will find helpful tips for sending weekend greetings and numerous sayings, quotes and texts you can send.


The term "weekend" is often abbreviated as "WE". The weekend refers to the period of time between two work weeks. When a holiday falls on a day before or after the weekend, it may be referred to as a "long weekend."

Derived from the English "Weekend" the term was increasingly used in Germany from the early 20th century. In England, the term originated already in the first half of the 19th century, when the free Saturday afternoon was introduced.

The weekend has established itself to this day in Germany as a general term that includes the end of the week, i.e. Saturday and Sunday. However, this free time at the end of the week barely existed in Germany for a long time.

History of the Weekend

The two-day weekend as we know it evolved for a shorter work week. British workers in the 18th and 19th centuries demanded longer breaks from the harsh working conditions of industrialization – unlike agriculture, which depended on the demands of the farm and daylight.

Employers gave workers more time to recover from alcohol consumption. The reason was that this was how many employees spent their day off. A shorter or half-day Saturday was therefore seen as a natural transition to the rest day on Sunday.

Weekend rest doesn’t necessarily mean resting through inactivity, which has a negative connotation and for some with an active life is equal to boredom, but through the exercise of another activity other than that which the workday demands.

Work during the working day is an activity for economic benefit, while rest during the week is a activity for free time, which consciously refrains from monetizing it as it is for fulfilling other needs that those that are economic, such as leisurely activities or sports.

Meaning of the Weekend

The weekend is important for our well-being

For many people, the weekend is a factor of work-life balance. At the end of the week, something is done with family or friends, short vacations take place, and anything that fell short in the household during the week can be taken care of.

Even hobbies are often only pursued intensely during the weekend. After work, there is often little time for many people to start other ventures or projects. So the weekend significantly impacts human satisfaction and the opportunities we have to do things outside of work.

Wishing Someone a Happy weekend: 3 tips

When you wish your friends a nice weekend every now and then, they know that you are thinking of them regularly. You’re showing them a sign of your attention and maybe even putting a smile on their face. In addition, you also remain in their thoughts.

Especially if you haven’t seen someone for a while, it’s a nice gesture to wish them a nice weekend. In the following tips, we’ll tell you the best time to do it, how to add variation to your weekend greetings, and how to create nice weekend pictures yourself.

The Best Time to send Messages

The ideal time for happy weekend wishes is Friday evening. Many people already think of Friday night as the weekend, even though it’s basically like any other day of the week.

However, this is where the anticipation of being able to sleep in, rest or do something on Saturday and Sunday comes in. Most workers tend to feel like they are really living their lives on the weekend.

They recharge their batteries for the next week, stay motivated and are less likely to suffer from burnout when they have the weekend off. People’s concentration is also better when they can switch off from time to time.

Besides Friday night between 6 and 10 p.m., Saturday morning or Saturday in general is also a good time to wish someone a good weekend.

Your Weekend Wishes Should Vary

Vary your weekend wishes

If you regularly wish your friends or colleagues a nice weekend, you should add a little variation. That means sending a regular text message or posting on social media from time to time, or sending a voicemail or even a video.

You can also send poems or quotes as weekend greetings or even make up a little story yourself. If you want to go the extra mile, you can even create your own Beautiful Weekend pictures. You’ll learn more about that in the next section.

Creating Beautiful Weekend Pictures

To create Beautiful Weekend pictures, you can choose something from our sayings and texts and combine it with a picture or photo. Either find a picture online that matches the weather, take a photo of your view from the window in the morning, or take a selfie of yourself.

Other options are pictures with typical weekend motifs like champagne glasses, landscapes, lucky charms like ladybugs or four-leaf clovers. Either you can then send the image by text and the message or saying afterwards or you can edit the image and insert the saying directly.

To edit your pictures you can use, the story function of Instagram, for example where you can upload an image, insert writing and then download it. Otherwise, you can also download special image editing programs to your PC or smartphone (like "Typic" or "Phonto").
