POTD: Sunday Stroll

POTD: Sunday StrollSunday Stroll Paris, France 2013

Reserving Sundays for family outings seems pretty universal. I assume that stems from the traditional Christian practice of treating Sunday as a day of prayer (or at least rest). But it also applies in more secular countries such as France. Can I assume that in Muslim dominated countries family outings are more likely to occur on Fridays? When I used to visit the Fashion Queen at Christmas when she was working in Washington, D.C. we would go out to eat on Christmas rather than fix a holiday dinner at home for just two people. The problem was that most restaurants were closed on Christmas. We usually ended up eating at Chinese restaurants (along with a lot of Jewish folks). No matter what your belief system, it seems there is no getting around the influence of religion on daily life.]]>
