Put Woden back in Wednesday!

Put Woden back in Wednesday!
For too long, the celebration of Wednesday has been infected with secular notions and has fallen away from its original, religious meaning. This sacrilege must end. Clearly, Wednesday was named to honor Woden, the anglo-saxon God, also called Mercury by the Romans.

Wednesday is not a “hump” day. It is not a mid-point in those evil Woden-haters’ work-weeks. It is a day to honor the God of the northern forests, mountains, and glens: Woden. All praise to Woden on Woden’s Day!

Let’s put Woden back in Wednesday, people!

And while we’re at it, we should put Tyr/Mars back in Tuesday, Thor back in Thursday, Frigg back in Friday, Saturn back in Saturday, the Sun-god back in Sunday, and Moon worship back in Monday.

Once we have achieved all this, then perhaps we can consider putting Christ back in Christmas.

RE: Put Woden back in Wednesday!
How dare you disrespect the great Saturnalian revels of the Solstice by suggesting we put Christ back in Christmas!

And so, as Tiny Tim observed,

"May all the great hoary gods of ancient peoples bless us, every one, or at the very least please don't smite us with horrible wrath. Oh, and I'm sorry for whatever I or my parents did that caused me to be lame as judgment."

I'm back baby! Thanks for everyone who sent me PMs asking what had happened to me.

I've said things like this before, but I tended to be serious. >.>

My big one, which I honestly work for is taking St. John out of Midsummer. Bugs the crap out of me, but I've (mostly) made peace with the fact that it isn't changing.

I want Tammuz honored by Jews because they honor him in their calendar just like the Christians honor all these other pagan deities in the names for their days of the week.

Hooray for the Birth of the Sun symbolized by many a dying/resurrection god including my favorite, Jesus Christ, even if his Story stole the Egyptian celestial knowledge of the three stars in Orion's Belt pointing to Osiris' star, Sirius, which is the origin of the "Three Wise Men" tale.

And as for Xmas, let's remember to keep the X in it, all right folks?

RE: Put Woden back in Wednesday!
Not sure about Wodan/Odin being synonymous with Mercury (nor Tyr with Mars,) but so far as I've known it's

Sunna's Day
Mani's Day
Tyr's Day
Wodan's Day
Thor's Day (get hammered!)
Freyja's Day

Saturday is Saturn's Day, oddly the only non Germanic deity on the list.

Cool list Satyros. I'm always particularly fond of telling trivia seekers how the word Friday comes from the Norse deity Freyja (whose correlative in Roman mythology is Venus).

I'll add the metals, let's keep this list of correspondences going. Smile

Sunday - Sun - gold (Au)
Monday - Moon - silver (Ag)
Tuesday - Mars - iron (Fe)
Wednesday - Mercury - mercury (Hg)
Thursday - Jupiter - tin (Sn)
Friday - Venus - copper (Cu)
Saturday - Saturn - lead (Pb)
