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 acceptable format for a day of the week?Furthermore, if that's the case, can I use>On est 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!
