Not so short:

months = DateString[#, "MonthName"] & /@
  Table[{2008, m}, {m, 12}]

{January,February,March,April,May,June,July,August,September,October,\
November,December}

shortMonths = StringTake[#, 3] & /@ months

{Jan,Feb,Mar,Apr,May,Jun,Jul,Aug,Sep,Oct,Nov,Dec}

Needs["Calendar`"]

weekdays = ToString /@
  Table[DayOfWeek[{2008, 11, d}], {d, 16, 22}]

{Sunday,Monday,Tuesday,Wednesday,Thursday,Friday,Saturday}

shortWeekDays = StringTake[#, 3] & /@
  weekdays

{Sun,Mon,Tue,Wed,Thu,Fri,Sat}

=============
Is there a short Mathematica command to obtain a list of month names or
short month names in order, without having to type them all in by hand? And
same question for days of the week.

Thanks in advance.
