The Burning Question: When is 'next weekend'?

Let distract you from the ‘serious’ news with one of life’s REAL dilemmas. (*not really)

WE KNOW HOW you feel.

It’s Monday, the bank holiday is wrapping up and, for some, it never happened.

So do like we do here in HQ and get stuck into a serious debate on one of life’s most pressing issues.


This week…


We had a full-blown argument in the office today about when ‘next weekend’ is. Some of us believe ‘next weekend’ refers to the one after ’this weekend’ (which is the one coming in a few days time), while others believe ‘next weekend’ is the most imminent one.

So, remembering that today is Monday, we’re asking you when ‘next weekend’ is?

Poll Results:

'Next weekend' is 9/10 May (5784)
'Next weekend' is 16/17 May (2138)
