the two-day time period formerly known as 'weekend' and traditionally occurring on Saturday and Sunday in Western cultures, during which many businesses are closed and people do not work, instead engaging in rest and relaxation. 'Weekwend' is a better term for this period because of it's recognition of the turning point offered by this free time, which is not only the 'end' of the previous week, but also the beginning of a new week and, for that matter, untold new adventures. That little 'w' recognizes the transitional nature of this cherished time of the week.
This weekwend I plan to just decompress after a rough week at work, probably catch up on some reading and see a movie with the boyfriend.
