Why do we call it Wednesday?
Thanks to this guy here:
Wednesday comes from Wodan’s Day, or Odin’s Day. Odin has about a million names, and one of them is Wodan.
And he was the inspiration for both Gandalf and Dumbledore.
Interestingly, in Germany Wednesday is called Mittwoch, or “Mid-Week.”
Yup – in English, Wednesday is named after a Norse/Germanic god. In Germany, it’s called “Middle of the Week.”
Yup. Welcome to Wednesday, people.
