 fe·ria /ˈfɪriə, ˈfɛr-/

From: Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary (1913)

 Fe·ri·a n.; pl. Feriæ  Eccl. A week day, esp. a day which is neither a festival nor a fast.

From: WordNet (r) 2.0

      n 1: a weekday on which no festival or holiday is celebrated; "in
           the middle ages feria was used with a prefixed ordinal
           number to designate the day of the week, so `secunda
           feria' meant Monday, but Sunday and Saturday were always
           called by their names, Dominicus and Sabbatum, and so
           feria came to mean an ordinary weekday"
      2: (in Spanish speaking regions) a local festival or fair,
         usually in honor of some patron saint
      [also: feriae (pl)]
