TGI Friday


Explanation:
It has become a standard expression in the U.S. and elsewhere to say one should think of having fun, relax, planning the week-end.

There is a restaurant chain called TGI Friday with slogans like, "It should be Friday every day". Sort of MacDonald Food.

It has become a way to describe everything that turns around "Freizeit -Wochenende".
