This question has been bothering most of us, as to why Sunday should be a holiday and not any other day, especially when there are 6 other days in the week.


So, we bring to you the answer to this question as to why an off on Sunday is important!

The Britishers were the first ones to start the holiday system in India, which initiated during the year 1843. This was done because the Britishers believed that Lord Jesus created this world in just 6 days and took rest on a Sunday.


It is said that it is also the day on which people would generally take rest from other worldly duties and was known as the "Sabbath" day. This practice continues even till date in all places where the Britishers ruled, including India.
