You can also use the `Date`

object to
get the number of the current day of the
week. This is done using the `getDay`

method. This method returns numbers from
`0`

to `6`

, where *week starts
on Sunday* and this day is numbered
`0`

. Monday is day number `1`

,
Tuesday is day number `2`

, and so on.

Let's see how the `getDay`

method
works with an example. Let's say today
is Tuesday. Then the following code
will output the number `2`

:

```
let date = new Date();
console.log(date.getDay());
```

Display the number of the current day of the week.

Determine if the current day of the week is a weekend or a workday.

Find out how many days are left until next Sunday.
