Some people welcome Friday night for religious purposes. Some welcome it for social reasons. Some for quiet and some for noise.
I welcome it as a signal that I can be amongst polite and happy people again. If I am clever I can stretch this out all the way to 7:00 AM Monday. I can please myself with what I do, even if that pleasure includes a day of housework – at least the housework is of direct benefit to me and the family and does not have to be bargained for as a “pricematch”.
I do not have to deal with the schnorrim for two days…
I love Friday night.
