What makes Thursday so special, you ask? Well, here are a few fun facts about Thursdays…

The name Thursday is derived from the Old English Þ?nresdægand the Middle English Thuresday (with loss of -n-, first in northern dialects, from influence of Old Norse Þorsdagr) meaning ‘Thor’s Day,” after the Norse God of Thunder and son of Odin, Thor. Who doesn’t LOVE Thor?! 

In most of the languages spoken in India, the word for Thursday is “Guruvara,” with vara meaning “day” and “guru” being the style for Brhaspati, who is guru to the gods and a regent of the planet Jupiter.

Estonians did not work on Thursdays and called their Thursday nights “evenings of Tooru.” Some historians say that Estonians would gather in holy woods known as “Hiis” on Thursday nights, where a bagpipe player would sit and play whilst people danced and sung until the dawn. Perhaps we should start this tradition once again! 

See? We told you Thursdays are special
