Using the Article in the Days of the Week in French
Some Notes: The French week starts on Monday, rather than Sunday. You may or may not need to use the masculine definite article "le." If you're talking about the day of a unique event, do not use an article.
Nous partons en vacances vendredi après le travail. -> We leave for vacation on Friday after work.
Notes: When talking about continuous actions, use the article.
Nous dînons avec les amis tous les dimanches. -> We have dinner with friends every Sunday.
Nous mangeons du poisson le vendredi -> We eat fish on Friday.
