I Celebrate Freya's Day Every Week Too!

Middle English fridai
Old English frigedæg "Freya's day"
composed of Frige (genetive singular of Freo) + dæg "day" (most likely)
or composed of Frig "Frigg" + dæg "day" (least likely)
Germanic frije-dagaz "Freya's (or Frigg's) day"
Latin dies Veneris "Venus's day"
Ancient Greek hemera Aphrodites "day of Aphrodite"

Freo is identical with freo, meaning free. It is from the Germanic frijaz meaning "beloved, belonging to the loved ones, not in bondage, free".

Freya (Fria) is the Teutonic goddess of love, beauty, and fecundity (prolific procreation). She is identified with the Norse god Freya. She is leader of the Valkyries and one of the Vanir. She is confused in Germany with Frigg.

Frigg (Frigga) is the Teutonic goddess of clouds, the sky, and conjugal (married) love. She is identified with Frigg, the Norse goddess of love and the heavens and the wife of Odin. She is one of the Aesir. She is confused in Germany with Freya.

Venus is the Roman goddess of love and beauty.

 Aphrodite (Cytherea) is the Greek goddess of love and beauty.

Hi shannonmeduh<br />
Merci!<br />

Hi shannonmeduh<br />
Thank Goddess it's Friday<br />
Thank Oden it's Friday?<br />

Hi shannonmeduh<br />
well just because you made it up does not mean it does not already exist. Urban dictionary says TOIF means teeth.<br />

Hi shannonmeduh<br />
I googled it and saw teeth. Right?<br />

Hi ChristianGothKitten<br />
here is a preview just for you:<br />
Saturn's day<br />
<br />
Middle English saterday<br />
Old English sæter(nes)dæg "Saturn's day"<br />
Latin dies Saturni "day of Saturn"<br />
Ancient Greek hemera Khronu "day of Cronus"<br />
Saturn is the Roman and Italic god of agriculture and the consort of Ops. He is believed to have ruled the earth during an age of happiness and virtue.<br />
<br />
Cronus (Kronos, Cronos) is the Greek god (Titan) who ruled the universe until dethroned by his son Zeus.<br />

Hi chipperchick<br />
of course my friend. My pleasure. I think we do have a time synch issue. I have a friend in Canada and I think my being 8 hours ahead really messes with communication. I have a friend in Australia and it does not seem to be so bad. Not sure why!<br />
Glad you liked Friday! My favorite is Woden's Day though!<br />
Moon day on the way!<br />
Love as always<br />

Koy,<br />

<br />
Love,<br />
As always,<br />
