Why Σάββατο instead of σάββατο??
Days of the week are capitalised in Greek: Κυριακή, Δευτέρα, Τρίτη, Τετάρτη, Πέμπτη, Παρασκευή, Σάββατο.
Ok thank you for all your answers :)
They are capitalized in Αγγλικά too, people have just become lazy :)
It's like Spanish Sabado.
Comes from Latin sabbătum, which comes from Ancient greek σάββατον, related to the word used in the Near East for 'rest'.
The New Testament Greek σάββατον is derived from the Hebrew שבת (Shabbat), meaning both the day of rest and the seventh day of the week.
This one that is going to be difficult to remember. In England, the Sabbath is Sunday - our 7th day as our week starts on a Monday.
Keep in mind that Monday is Δευτέρα in Greek, meaning "second".
This is a good example for a comment being downvoted although correct. Unfortunately this happens quite often.
It's exactly like Italian "sabbato".
