two online English-French dictionaries translate weekend into le weekend:
No doubt that the word in France is weekend. Pronunciation varies but there is a chance that the last -d is not pronounced.
I suspect Belgium to use also fin de semaine quite naturally. Just a vague memory, I could be wrong...

I have a full understanding for "än Schöne", but the thing brought into here by the "Balkanese" cashiers in the retail business, to add a "no" and say "än Schöne no " is nonsense, unless the "addressee" is to die in the following night.


why?
all it means is "have a nice rest of the day" or "enjoy the rest of the day"
