On what day of the week was the attack on Pearl Harbor?

Answer:

Sunday

On Sunday December 7, 1941, Japanese warplanes attacked the home base of the U.S. Pacific fleet at Pearl Harbor. Why Japan chose a Sunday morning was not an accident. Japanese intelligence knew that many of military personnel would be attending off-base religious services, leaving the ships in the harbor understaffed in the event of an emergency. By deciding to attack on a Sunday morning, Japan had knowingly chosen a day where the United States would not be at full strength and would be ill-prepared for the surprise attack.
