The Tagalog days of the week are: Sunday - Linggó (Domingo) Monday - Lunes Tuesday - Martés Wednesday - Miyérkulés Thursday - Huwebes Friday - Biyernes Saturday - Sábadó Like in Indonesia, Linggó also means "week". The days are taken from Spanish. Months are: January - Enero February - Pebrero March - Marso April - Abríl May - Mayo June - Hunyo July - Hulyo August - Agosto September - Septiyembre (Setyembre) November - Nobyembre December - Disyembre Like the days of the week, the months all come from Spanish. September has an interesting occurance with the drop of the p. Year is "taón", BTW. ________________________________________________ The rattan basket criticizes the palm leaf basket, still both are full of holes.
