Why is "Nous sommes" used for days of the week?

I've just been curious about this. Why is it that saying a day of the week, something like "It's monday" uses 'nous'? as in:>Nous sommes lundi.Am I able to say it another way? is using: >Aujourd'hui c'est lundi. / C'est lundi.an acceptable format for a day of the week?Furthermore, if that's the case, can I use>On est lundi.in less formal contexts?I just want to know which of these is correct to use, and why it is that 'nous' is used pour les jours de la semaine. Merci!
