Tuesday or Tuesday-Wednesday. Wednesday. Thurs-Thursday, Thu, or Thurs-Thursday Fri. Friday.
Thurs-Thursday, Thu, or Thurs-Thursday-Saturday? Which one is correct? And what about the weekend? Is it called Friday or Saturday?
Friday and Saturday. The weekend is called Friday and Saturday because Sunday is the Lord's Day, the day of rest.
Sunday. The Christian Sabbath is called the "Lord's Day" because it is when God created the world and mankind rested from their labors. Thus, the Bible says, "Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy." (Exodus 20:8). It is a day when Christians should not work; that is why most countries have laws about how long employees can be required to work on their days off.
Some people claim that writing Thursday is wrong because there are only two days in a week instead of three. But this is incorrect because Friday is always included, so there are really only seven days in a week. Weekdays are called Monday through Wednesday, Thursday through Saturday, and Sunday.
So, writing Thursday is correct because it refers to any day other than Sunday or Wednesday (the latter being the end of a month).

Friday, like any other day. It's not special except that it's the last day of the work week.
Here are some examples of how Thursday can be abbreviated: TH, TTh, Txt, Wk, and Fr.
Abbreviations are used when space is an issue or if you have a lot of messages to send. An example of when they are useful is in a job search where you need to send many applications on different days. Another example is when your schedule is always packed full of meetings but you want to be able to send messages quickly without typing out the whole date each time.

* When writing dates, always include the days of the week: Monday and Tuesday are off. When accompanied by a date, shorten long months as follows: Jan., Feb., Aug., Sept., Oct., Nov., Dec. ; otherwise, spell out. Example: The meeting is scheduled for Monday, October.
* Do not use commas or periods to separate the days of the week unless they are part of a list such as "Monday, Wednesday, and Friday." Otherwise, leave them out altogether. Example: We meet every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 10 a.m.
* Do not use words like "only" or "just" when describing the days of the week. For example, do not say that this is the only Monday that we meet on time. Instead, find more precise words to describe what you have written. For example, say that this is the first Monday that we have met on time.
* Do not use the word "a" before the days of the week. For example, do not write "a Monday holiday" or "three students were a-buddies".
* Use the present simple rather than the present continuous to write about regular activities. For example, instead of writing "Mary goes to the gym three times per week," write "Mary goes to the gym regularly."
