For the people of the Andes, the days of the week begin in the following way with a celebration of different Inca deities. On the first day we recognize the most important Inca god, the sun.
Sunday is called Intichay p’unchay : The Day of the Sun.
Monday – Killachay p’unchay : The Day of the Moon.
Tueday – Antichay p’unchay : The Day of Being Able to Do Things.
Wednesday – Qoyllurchay p’unchay : Day of the Morning Star, Venus.
Thursday – Illapachay P’unchay : The Day of Illapa, Lightning and Thunder.
Thursday – Ch’askachay p’unchay : The Day of the Stars.
Saturday – K’uychichay p’unchay : The Day of the Rainbow.
In this way people lived and carried out their activities. Today we continue with this program throughout the week.
