  History & info - the days of the week
The common explanation is that the seven-day week was established as imperial calendar in the late Roman empire and furthered by the Christian church for historical reasons.
A week that lies partly in one year and partly in another is assigned a number in the year in which most of its days lie.
If you define a "week" as a 7-day period, obviously the answer is no. But if you define a "week" as a named interval that is greater than a day and smaller than a month, the answer is yes.

  Week - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In Christian liturgy, the week is mainly dominated by the special status of the Sunday.
The week was regarded as a sacred institution among the Jews owing to the law of the Sabbath rest and its association with the first chapter of Genesis.
The consecration of particular days of the week to particular subjects of devotion is also officially recognized by the special Office of the Blessed Virgin on the Saturday, by the Friday Masses of the Passion during Lent and by the arrangement of Votive Offices for special week days approved by Pope Leo XIII.

 Holy Week
Holy week observances spread to Spain by the fifth century, to Gaul and England by the early seventh century.
The purpose of Holy Week is to reenact, relive, and participate in the passion of Jesus Christ.

 The Days of the Week
While the Eastern Mediterranean languages reflect variations on a simple numbering of the days of the week, the languages of Western Europe all (except Portuguese) reflect names based on the names of the naked eye planets, which included the Sun and the Moon, either in a Latin version or a corresponding Germanic version.
The day that many people consider to the the 1st day of the week, Monday, is the first planet and does begin the sequence of planets.
The status of Sunday as the first day of the planetary week, rather than Saturday, could be due either to Jewish and then Christian influence or to the circumstance that the Sun became the principle Roman state god as Sôl Invictus or Mithras under Aurelian and the Tetrarchy.
