Curiosity got the best of me again. I sent someone a “happy Friday” and then curiously wondered where this day got its name. This is what I found on the good old www.
Friday is named after the wife of Odin. Some scholars say her name was Frigg; others say it was Freya; other scholars say Frigg and Freya were two separate goddesses. Whatever her name, she was often associated with Venus, the Roman goddess of love, beauty and fertility. “Friday” comes from Old English “Frīgedæg.”
Having said that, have a Frigg and good Friday.
I’m an English major and studied some Old English; it is a very different language, but I loved the read and the sound of it (even though no one really knows what it sounded like exactly).
I too hope that all of your Friday’s are good Frigg days.
Thank you Geri, and yours as well. 🙂
