Did you know that the days of the week that we use, are actually named after other/foreign gods?
Monday – Moon Day
Tuesday – Tiu Day
Wednesday – Woden Day
Thursday – Thor Day
Friday – Freya Day
Saturday – Saturn Day
Sunday – Sun Day
In biblical times, the Lord’s people named the days after numbers ( 1st day, 2nd day, 3rd day, etc. )
Do you think we should return to that or will people get mixed up, as some count Sunday as the first day of the week, and other, like the French, count Monday as the first?
Although it may be challenging to change something we’ve been taught as a child, it doesn’t mean we should let it be. The Portguese have already begun the change back to numbers. Shall we?
