When someone smiled at me today I started smiling too.
I passed around the corner,and someone saw my grin.
When he smiled I realized,I'd passed it on to him...
Saturday is the only day of the week to retain its Roman origin in English, named after the Roman god Saturn associated with the Titan Cronos, father of Zeus and many Olympians. It's original Anglo-Saxon rendering was Sæturnesdæg (pronounced Sat-urn-es-dag or Sat-urn-es-dye). In Latin it was Dies Saturni, "Day of Saturn"; compare French Samedi and Spanish Sábado, which come from Sambata Dies (Day of the Sabbath).
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.
The name Thursday comes from the Old English Þūnresdæg (prnounced thoon-res-dag or thoon-res-dye), meaning the day of Þunor, commonly known in Modern English as Thor, the Germanic god of thunder. It is based on the Latin Dies Iovis, "Day of Jupiter"; compare French Jeudi and Spanish Jueves.
