Benish-Days a name given by the modern Egyptians to three days of the week, which are devoted more completely to pleasure than the other four, and in which they feel less bound to observe religious duties. They are so called because the benish is worn more especially on these days, being a garment of common use, and not of ceremony. The Benish-days are Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays. See Gardner, Faiths of the World, s.v.
