I love thinking about things we take for granted (when I remember). Have you ever thought of the days of the week?
Here they are:
Monday Moon day
Tuesday Tyr’s day. Tyr was the one armed Norse god associated with single combat.
Wednesday Wodin’s day. The ruler of the Norse god’s realm. Also Odin.
Thursday Thor’s day. Okay, you got that one.
Friday Frigga’s day. The wife of Wodin. Pretty nifty women’s equality.
Saturday Saturn’s day
Sunday Sun’s day
