Happy Friday

The name Friday comes from the Old English Frigedæg (pronounced free-ye-dag or free-ye-dye), meaning the day of Frige, the Germanic goddess of beauty, who is a later incarnation of the Norse goddess Frigg, but also potentially connected to the Goddess Freyja. It is based on the Latin Dies Veneris, "Day of Venus"; compare French Vendredi and Spanish Viernes. Venus was the Roman godess of beauty, love and sex.
