The Days of the Week
The ancient Babylonians, then the Romans, named the days of the week after planets and other bodies they saw in the sky.
|Sunday: Sun’s day||
|Monday: Moon’s day|
|Tuesday: Tiu’s day; Roman god
|Wednesday: Woden’s day; the
Roman god Mercury became the
Scandinavian god Woden. The day
of Mercury was translated as
|Thursday: Thor’s day; originally
the day of Jove became Thor’s day.
Thor and the roman god Jove
(Jupiter) were gods of thunder.
|Friday: Freyja’s day; the day of
the planet Venus was translated
into Freyja or Frigg’s day because
both are goddesses of Love.
|Saturday: Saturn’s day|
