[Tutor] Python Version of "enum" ?

Is there an equivalent of C++'s 'enum' keyword to set a number of named
constants ( like so ) 
enum {

in Python? It makes reading the code a lot simpler, as opposed to having to
look up what a status of "1" means, it can be replaced with "ON", which is
much easier to understand. 

If not, can you declare named constants another way? Perhaps 'const MONDAY =
1', for example. 

Thank You,
