Definite and indefinite articles with the days of the week

Il est né un dimanche

Il est né le dimanche

Which one is correct? Can't we use indefinite articles with the days of the week ?

Hi Dinali,

I say le dimanche is correct but have a look here for further information:-

https://forum.wordreference.com/threads/le-dimanche-6-janvier-article-date-avec-le-jour-de-la-semaine.776925/   

 In particular pay attention to the piece by Maître Capello who I have followed for years  --  he is excellent for advice.

Hope it helps.

Jim
