Saturday and Sunday are special days of the week in Britain, because most people are at home. Many people spend the whole two days at home, practising hobbies, if it rains, or visiting friends or relatives or going to places of interest if the weather is fine. Gardening is another popular activity. Also the British like DIY (Do-it-yourself), so most of them dedicate the weekends to doing little jobs to improve their houses. Others go to a religous service or go to watch or play different sports. All sports in general are now played not only on Saturdays but also on Sandays. Those who have pets take them for a walk and parks are crowded with animals of all kinds and sizes. It is a sight to be seen, especially in the London parks.
