The russian calendar day!

The Russian system has:
first day of the week [Monday]
second day
middle day
fourth day
fifth day
last day and
resurrection day!
The only calendar in which there is no planet involved! Even communism could not do away with the resurrection!
But I am yet to find a reference beyond the days of the fortnights in any dated literature.
I do not think Valluvar or Ouvaiyaar have said any thing in this respect.
Do you have any idea?

அந்த "சனி" நாமா கிழமையா?
அவ்வையாரில் இவர் எத்தனாமவர்?
வேறு கிழமைகள் எங்காவது குறிப்பிடப் பட்டிருக்கின்றதா?

Yes for some time they even had a system of 5 days to a week - Note it. It is not 5 working days to a week but a real 5 day week. That is why wednesday came to be called middleday!

I think Sri Knowledge Connection's thiruppadhigam refers the 9 grahas as graha only and not as week days.

என்பதற்காக திரு ஞான சம்பந்தரையும் ஆங்கிலப் "படுத்த" வேண்டுமா?
இது உங்களுக்கே கொஞ்சம் ஓவராகத் தெரியலை?
