i dag er det lørdag og i morgen er det søndag sådan siger man det på dansk!

I agree with you, but from a grammatical point of view, leaving out "der" is not incorrect. It's just odd for a Dane to say.

There have to be "det" before days. 100%

So we should be using an article before the weekday name in our sentences?

When I wrote, "I dag er lørdag og i morgen er søndag" I got a note saying another correct version was "I dag er lørdag og i morgen er det søndag" When I write "I dag er lørdag og i morgen er søndag" it says it is incorrect. Someone needs to make up their mind and correct that.

It disturbs my mind that the word "det" i missing as a word to click on, 2 times, to build this phrase correctly, although I haven't ever said "I dag er lørdag, og i morgen er søndag", but I have always said "I dag er det lørdag, og i morgen er det søndag. Camatically, the phrase would not work if you wrote it reversed, although like this: "Er lørdag i dag, og er søndag i morgen", but if you wrote with the 2 times "det" in it, it would function: "Det er lørdag i dag, og det er søndag i morgen." You could also say: "Det er lørdag i dag og søndag i morgen," only with 1 "det" in it.
