I haven’t been so excited about Friday since last Friday.
Friday is not just another day of the week. It is actually the most expected and beloved day since it marks the beginning of the weekend. On Fridays, the work week is almost over while two days of freedom and fun over the weekend await us. There is a sense of anticipation and thrill that makes Fridays exciting, especially in Summer.
Moreover, Fridays are shorter and more fun. Have a look at these Friday quotes to understand why is Friday so special.
