TGIF: Why do we love Friday so much?

Hey guys! Welcome to our ENGLISH BITES – This is Erika Belmonte speaking and in case you need the transcription of this English Bite, go to www.englishbites.com.br and look for the episode number 170.


There are more than a million people who long for the weekend to come. Those around the world who work on a Monday to Friday shift tend to make plans for the weekend way in advance. If you have heard of the term ‘TGIF’ (Thank God It’s Friday), you sure will love these super reasons why everybody loves Friday. Some people are super superstitious with Friday the 13th, thinking this day is somehow unlucky. However, in Hinduism, it is considered lucky since it is a day dedicated to Lord Shiva. Anyway, I totally respect who doesn’t like the number but the thing is, I like it and I like Fridays as well and there’s a plus… Friday gets a lot of things started in most of our lives. It is that day when you get to relax, sleep for another hour and even meet those long lost friends. This day is loved by most people all around the world.


Today I’d like to share with you all, why in my opinion, everyone loves Friday. Some of them will totally fit for your but some won’t make sense. I listed the most common ones. If there’s any you really liked but you’re not doing it yet, so here’s your chance to get it started tomorrow: on Saturday.

So… people in general love Friday because…


Hanging out with your friends

One of the reasons why people love Fridays is because you get to catch up with those friends you have been promising the whole week to meet.


The Friday Attitude

Have you noticed the change of attitude in people when it is a Friday? They are happy and fun to hang out with. A rocking atmosphere simply add smiles to your face.


You Get To Unwind

This is one of the days in the week where you can let your hair down, relax and unwind with a cup of hot tea… or beer, or wine or whatever or like to drink. Relax can help you de-stress which is essential for your health.


Goodbye To Those Blues

That’s right. The reason why people love Fridays is because you get to say goodbye to those weekday blues. Those blues can really get you tied down. Guys, blue is a synonym for the word sad ok?


Party, Party & Party Time to party, party and party.

This is one of the main reasons why people love Fridays, especially the younger ones. This is the only day you can get sloshed and chill out


You Fall In Love With Your Pillow  – that’s me! haha

Time to hit the sack and wake up late. This could happen only on Fridays. People who are ‘movieholics’ usually love Fridays for this reason.

Friday Introduces You To Some ‘Me’ Time

People love Fridays because it gives you a reason to spend time with yourself. The off from the busy schedules can hamper your alone time to a great extent.


Time for your Family

Depending on what you do, family is not your priority or worst, it is ignored during the week. A movie night or a family dinner is one of the reasons why we love Fridays.


Look Out For Adventure

The long weekend is a blessing to a happy adventure. For those adventurous freaks, Fridays are loved for this very reason. Oh, just so you know, long weekend the name we use in English when there’s a holiday on Friday or Monday and it makes the weekend longer. That’s why it’s called long weekend. Got it?


So, that’s it for today guys. I really hope you have enjoyed today’s episode. THANK YOU SO MUCH for all your support and for listening to this English bite. Take care of yourselves and I’ll see you on the next one. Bye
