THE DAYS OF THE GODS

Some of the Viking gods and goddeses are still remembered in our days of the week.

Sunday and Monday are named after the Sun and Moon, who were shaped by the gods out of molten sparks from Muspell, the world of fire.
Tuesday is named after the god Tyr. Scandinavians call this day Tirsdag or Tisdag.
Wednesday is named after the god Odin. Scandinavians call this day Onsdag. The English word comes from Odinís Anglo-Saxon name of Woden or Wśden.
Thursday is named after the god Thor. Scandianvians call this day Torsdag.
Friday is named after the goddess Frigg. Scandianvians call this day Fredag.
Saturday is the odd one out. Itís named after the Roman god, Saturn. Scandinavians call this day LÝrdag or LŲrdag, which means Bath Day, because this was the day when Vikings had a bath!
