Biggest Day Of The Week Tomorrow! Wednesday!

Woden was worshipped during the Migration period, until the 7th or 8th century, when Germanic paganismwas gradually replaced by Christianity. In Christianised Anglo-Saxon England, Woden was rationalised as a historical king, and remnants of worship were continued into modern times as folklore. Woden features prominently in both English and Continental folklore as the leader of the Wild Hunt. Some believe he is a precursor of the English Father Christmas, or Father Winter, and the American Santa Claus

              Woden's day


Middle English wodnesdaywednesday, or wednesdai

Old English wodnesdæg "Woden's day"

Latin dies Mercurii "day of Mercury"

Ancient Greek hemera Hermu "day of Hermes"
 

Woden is the chief Anglo-Saxon/Teutonic god. Woden is the leader of the Wild Hunt. Woden is from wod "violently insane" + -en "headship". He is identified with the Norse Odin.

 

Mercury is the Roman god of commerce, travel, thievery, eloquence and science. He is the messenger of the other gods. (Mercredi is french for Wednesday )

 

Hermes is the Greek god of commerce, invention, cunning, and theft. He is the messenger and herald of the other gods. He serves as patron of travelers and rogues, and as the conductor of the dead to Hades.

  Woden's Day is the origin for Wednesday.

HI ShanaRae<br />
It was just a joke. Wednesday is the biggest day of the week because it has more letters than any other. That is worth celebrating but not worth seeing a shrink over!<br />
