It’s Wednesday again for Happy Hump Day people
What do you know about Hump Day? Here are some more fun facts about the all-important “hump” of the week on Wednesday.
- Wednesday gets its name from Woden, the most important god in the German pantheon, often identified with the Norse god Odin.
- The Roman God ‘Mercury’ is associated with both Odin and Woden. Notably countries with languages derived from Latin have similar words for Wednesday such as France with ‘Mercredi’ , Italy with ‘Mercoledi’ and Spain with ‘Mercioles’.
- The Japanese for Wednesday translates to ‘Water day’, as the planet Mercury was known as the ‘water star’.
- Wednesday Addams, the daughter in the Addams Family movies created by Charles Addams, got her name from Monday’s Child. This was a nursery rhyme that characterised children born on each day of the week and Wednesday’s child was “full of woe”.
- In the USA Wednesday is known as “hump day” because you need to get past the middle of the working week to get to the end of it.
