What about Sunday?
Well, there’s an easy answer to that question.
Sunday is named after – you guessed it – the freaking sun. And that’s the end of the story, my virtual friend.
But if you’re the kind of person who wants to bring Norse mythology into everything (and if you are, I love you for it) then Sunday can be tied to Sol, the sun goddess.
Yes, in Norse mythology the sun is pulled in a chariot driven by a woman.
Sol’s brother Mani, the origin of the word Monday, pulls a chariot carrying the moon.
And why does the sun move so quickly across the heavens?
Well, because both Sol and Mani are being freaking chased by giant wolves named Skoll (Treachery) and Hati (Hate).
And the wolves will catch them, once Ragnarök begins.
Sleep well, friends!
