then friday

Friday’s at work are pretty chill. There’s fewer people on the road headed to work in the morning. Fewer people are in the office and the people that are there are at the end of a long week and usually have a story to tell.

I like listening to their stories.

Buy why is friday capitalized?

Turns out the internet has an answer.

Certainly all the days of the week are proper names for those days. They are in turn named after astronomical objects or gods:

  • Sunday – the Sun
  • Monday – the Moon
  • Tuesday – Tiw (Mars)
  • Wednesday – Wodan or Odin (Mercury)
  • Thursday – Thor (Jupiter)
  • Friday – Frige (Venus)
  • Saturday – Saturn
