Norse Days of the Week

Did you know that the days of the week are actually named after the Norse Gods? Sunday is Sunna’s day, she who drives the Sun across the sky daily. Monday is Mani’s day, the legendary “Man in the Moon.” Tuesday belongs to the War God Tyr, Tues, Teiwaz whose action chained the “Wolf of Greed.” Wednesday belongs to Woden. Woden’s day belongs to the All Father Himself. And Thursday, you may have by now guessed, belongs to Thor, the great protector of Middle Earth.
