Contrary to the Monday to Friday, nine to fivers, I do not celebrate TGIF. Instead, I celebrate the arrival of Mondays, or the days after a long weekend is over.
Weekends (and worse, the longer ones) are but mini versions of the winter holiday break, the time when just about everyone - atheist, agnostic, Jew, gentile, observing and non-observing, etc. - gets caught up in Xmas and later, New Year celebrations.
Even "news" takes a break.
From the perspective of someone living alone and deep in the poverty well looking up, it can feel like the cover of the well has been pulled over. All is darkness and even the walls of the well are too far distant to touch.
