Sabbath into weekend

Yesterday while reading the first reading of the Mass, about how Yahweh instructs the Israelites to keep the Sabbath holy and why, I was distracted.  The immediate thought that came to my mind was how did the the one day of sabbath turn into two days of 'weekend' in Europe which is predominantly Christian?  That too if it were to remain one day of weekend, I'd still see the connection, but two days?  Saturday and Sunday?

Perhaps one of the miracles of Jesus like turning water into wine, turning sabbath into weekend!
