A week is a time unit equal to seven days. It is the standard time period used for cycles of work days and rest days in most parts of the world.
The term "week" is sometimes expanded to refer to other time units comprising a few days. Such "weeks" of between four and ten days have been used historically in various places. Intervals longer than 10 days are not usually termed "weeks" as they are closer in length to the fortnight or the month than to the seven-day week.

Famous quotes containing the word week:
“How pleasant is Saturday night,
When Ive tried all the week to be good,
And not spoke a word that was bad,
And obliged everyone that I could.”
—Nancy Sproat (17661827)
“And although he had given himself a week to do it in and had told the landlady that he had finally decided to leave on Saturday, Ganin felt that neither this week not the next would change anything. Meanwhile nostalgia in reverse, the longing for yet another strange land, grew especially strong in spring.”
—Vladimir Nabokov (18991977)
“A baby nurse is one that changes diapers and loves em dearly. Get up at all hours of the night to give em the bottle and change their pants. If the baby coughs or cries, you have to find out the need. I had my own room usually, but I slept in the same room with the baby. I would take full charge. It was twenty-four hours. I used to have one day a week off and Id go home and see my own two little ones.”
—Ruth Lindstrom (c. 1892?)
