Do atheists and Christians want a different name for the days of the week?
Hee, hee! Do not offend the Pagan Gods and Goddesses with the suggestion of supplanting them with other, lesser names! ;-)
Oh, c'mon, thumbs downers, it was just a joke. I'm not really a polytheist...
If we're going to be silly, then I vote for Saturday to be Kestra Day. Saturday is everyone's favorite day of the week, and I want to be everyone's favorite! :-) Besides, we'd be right next to each other. How sweet is that? ;-)
I really like Equinox's answers. It conveys the feelings associated with a normal 5-day workweek.... :-) However, I think the titles are a bit on the long side, and I'd have trouble getting it right all of the time...lol
Tenzin: There's a great idea! Tuesday will be Pizza Day... and ummm, Wednesday should be Party Hat Day, or should it be Funny Hat Day? I'm starting to like this idea. We could always make all of the days of the week into something fun. *~<
what is the origin of the names of the days of the week?
Different days of the week have a couple of different origins:
The name comes from the Latin dies solis, meaning "sun's day": the name of a pagan Roman holiday.
The name comes from the Anglo-Saxon monandaeg, "the moon's day". This second day was sacred to the goddess of the moon.
This day was named after the Norse god Tyr. The Romans named this day after their war-god Mars: dies Martis.
The day named to honor Wodan (Odin).
The day named after the Norse god Thor. In the Norse languages this day is called Torsdag.
The day in honor of the Norse goddess Frigg.
This day was called dies Saturni, "Saturn's Day", by the ancient Romans in honor of Saturn. In Anglo-Saxon: sater daeg.
