Usually Sundays here.

Beach, why are they cloed on Tuesday's? What's significant about that day for barbers?

if i know right, it aint the barbers,... its their customers.... indians dont usually go for a haircut on tuesdays - so the barbers carve out their weekly holiday accordingly.

Give me some time. I'll check with mom later about the reason. She don't allow us to cut nails too on Tuesdays!!

....you know we are a superstitious (is the spelling correct?) race


BTW our Zoos & Museums are closed on Mondays.The logic is simple. On Sundays they are open to receive visitors

In the dim distant past of an almost dead brain cell I seem to remember something similar here in UK. Here superstitions like that tend to be justified by saying things like 'Jesus cut his toe-nails on a Friday and look what happened to him...' I'm making this up. And I've probably offended the Christians. Oh well...

In Belgium, usually Sundays and Mondays.
Bakeries, butcher's shops, barbers etc... small shops, all of them opened on Saturdays, do close on Mondays.
