Each day of the year is also associated with a name - typically dedicated to the day's patron saint. This day then becomes the day of people who have that name (e.g., all women named Maria celebrate their day on December 24).

To express that today is a particular day, you just use the name of the day:

Today is Sunday.Today is Sunday.

However, to express that an event takes place on a particular day, you use the preposition on:

On Sunday I meet my girlfriend and do nothing.On Sunday I'll meet my friend and don't do anything at all.

In addition, to express that something happens regularly on a particular day, you use the name of the day, lowercase, and add an -s suffix:

Well, I don't work on Sundays anyway!Well, on Sundays I don't work anyway!

Finally, to say that something happens this / next / each / which days, you use the accusative case endings on the determiners, as these - somewhat redundant - entries from the cat's diary prove:

This Sunday I'm going to Munich to visit my girlfriend.This Sunday I'm going to Munich and will visit my friend.
Next Sunday she will come here to the castle.Then next Sunday she will come here to the castle.
See you almost every Sunday!We see each other almost every Sunday.
Hmmm ... I wonder: which Sunday don't we see each other? Hmmm ... I'm wondering: Which Sunday don't we see each other?
Oh, I know! She didn't come last Sunday! Unfortunately, your witch turned her into a dog! Pooh!Oh, I know! Last Sunday she didn't come! Her witch, unfortunately, turned her into a dog! Yuck!
