Thursday

Post # 1

I have a question I know a lot of people refer Thursday as Thors day. But is it?

Thurse is also a references to the Jotunfolk. I really want to know if I am right, wrong, and if so how and am I the only one to think about this?

In England it has always been the tradition that Thursday is Thor's day, Wednesday Woden's day, Friday Frig's day ,or Freya.

What Brysing said is what I was taught in school, what is more is that it corresponds sublimely to the traditional magical associations with the days of the week, however I am unaware which came first- the names of the days, or the associations thereof.

Until the Vikings came, there doesn't seem to be any names for the days. With the coming of Christianity there was the Sabbath,day of rest. But at that time most people worked in agriculture, and farming never had a day of rest! Even today, if farmers go to church, the work is carried on.

In Old English Thursday is spelt like "thursdaeg" which literally translated to "Thor's day" and also "thunresdaeg" which literally translated to "thunder day". In Old Norse, Thursday was "thorsdagr", again meaning "Thors day". Close to the word Thurse, but different. I don't think Thursday had any connection to the Jotunfolk, if that's what you were asking about.
