I honestly don't know if this is right forum to ask this questions but, earlier I asked if anyone knew where the phrase "upper weekend" came from, referring to the next weekend to come. Thanks you for the response to that request. I tried to research it and the only info I found was that it is used in Africa. Does anyone know if this term is common in Czech Republic or Montenegro?

Not that I know of. If you don't hear from anyone else within the next five days or so, probably no one else here knows about it either.

I found two instances online that seem to refer to the weekend before last and not the one after the next, both from Nigeria.

I had never heard this use of "upper" until now, and I could find no evidence of a correlation with any conceivable derivation in the OED. I suspect it is Nigerian Pidgin, but I could not find a good dictionary online.

It occurred to me later that if it does indeed mean "two weekends ago", it could be a reference to its position on the calendar page. Just a thought.
