History of THURSDAY

Thursday is the fourth day of the week between Wednesday and Friday. The English word Thursday is named after the Norse God of Thunder, Thor. Thursday literally means “Thor’s day” in old English. Thor represented riding a chariot drawn by goats and wielding the hammer. In most language with Latin origin, the day is named after the God and planet Jupiter.

Jupiter is depicted as the chief God of sky and thunder who maintained his power with his thunder belt. In ancient Greek, it is also called the day of Zeus. Thursday before Easter is also known as Maundy Thursday. Thursday is generally a working day. In the US, it is Thanksgiving day. It is also celebrated the annual festival on the fourth Thursday of November.
