My favorite day

Yesterday was Friday night but I had to work as one of my cashiers was on leave. Otherwise, I would take my girl out for dinner. Well, Friday is normally the only night where I can take leave from work.

Anyway, Friday night is the only time where I get to see new customers as they just walk in after visiting the pasar malam near my place.

And also business is moderate too as on this night our rival just a few doors away only closes on Friday night.

I would look forward to this special day. So I simply love Friday.


The Seven-Day Week

The Babylonians marked time with lunar months. They proscribed some activities during several days of the month, particularly the
first -- the first visible crecent,
seventh -- the waxing half moon,
fourteenth -- the full moon,
nineteenth -- dedicated to an offended goddess,
twenty-first -- the waning half moon,
twenty-eigth -- the last visible crecent,
twenty-nineth -- the invisible moon, and
thirtieth (possibly) -- the invisible moon.
The major periods are seven days, 1/4 month, long. This seven-day period was later regularized and disassociated from the lunar month to become our seven-day week.

Sunday -- Sun's day

Middle English sone(n)day or sun(nen)day

Monday -- Moon's day

Middle English monday or mone(n)day

Tuesday -- Tiu's day

Middle English tiwesday or tewesday
Old English tiwesdæg "Tiw's (Tiu's) day"
Tiu (Twia) is the English/Germanic god of war and the sky.

Wednesday -- Woden's day

Middle English wodnesday, wednesday, or wednesdai
Old English wodnesdæg "Woden's day"
Woden is the chief Anglo-Saxon/Teutonic god. Woden is the leader of the Wild Hunt.

Thursday -- Thor's day

Middle English thur(e)sday
Old English thursdæg
Thor is the Norse god of thunder.

Friday -- Freya's day

Middle English fridai
Old English frigedæg "Freya's day"
Freya (Fria) is the Teutonic goddess of love, beauty, and fecundity (prolific procreation).

Saturday -- Saturn's day

Middle English saterday
Old English sæter(nes)dæg "Saturn's day"
Saturn is the Roman and Italic god of agriculture and the consort of Ops. He is believed to have ruled the earth during an age of happiness and virtue.

  10. Fridays have always been my favourite because you know the next day is Saturday - no school, no work.

    The 19th day caused me some humour - dedicated to an offended godess.☺
