7 Days of the Week
Everybody knows that there are 7 "days of the week".
But do you know that there are only 5 "weekdays"?
And of course the "weekend" has 2 days.
The days of the week come from the Names of mythical figures, so the first letter of each day must be a CAPITAL letter.
Days of the Week:
Monday = associated with the Moon
Tuesday = from the god Tiw, associated with Mars
Wednesday = from Germanic god Odin
Thursday = from Germanic god of thunder Thor
Friday = from Germanic goddess Frigga associated with Venus
Saturday = associated with Saturn
Sunday = associated with the Sun
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday
Here are the abbreviations:
Tu., Tue., Tues.
Th., Thu., Thur., Thurs.
(The most common abbreviations are the ones with 3 letters.)
