No Name Calling Week 2023. Words Do Hurt - Name-Calling Isn't A Joke Think Before You Speak!
The purpose of name calling is to upset you and make you feel bad. If it doesn't bother you, then there's no point in doing it. So you need to show that it doesn't bother you. The best way to show that it doesn't bother you is to laugh about it... "Haha, yeah I used to do that, but I don't anymore." If he keeps doing it, just shrug it off, roll your eyes and laugh AT him, because it's old news and it's no big deal to you anymore.
Where do the names of the week come from? For instance why do we call Sunday "Sunday"?
Probably more than you need to know, but searching on 'origin days of week' I found this:
The name comes from the Latin dies solis, meaning "sun's day": the name of a pagan Roman holiday. It is also called Dominica (Latin), the Day of God. The Romance languages, languages derived from the ancient Latin language (such as French, Spanish, and Italian), retain the root.
French: dimanche; Italian: domenica; Spanish: domingo
German: Sonntag; Dutch: zondag. [both: 'sun-day']
The name comes from the Anglo-Saxon monandaeg, "the moon's day". This second day was sacred to the goddess of the moon.
French: lundi; Italian: lunedi. Spanish: lunes. [from Luna, "Moon"]
