Thursday: When the hammer is smashing up the skies
And we have just arrived to Thursday, named after Thor, the Norse god of thunder. He travels through the heavens in a chariot, wearing a special belt and iron gloves which give him extra strength to lift his giant hammer.
Romance languages based their fifth day’s name upon the Latin Dies Iovis, meaning the Day of Jupiter (jueves in Spanish, jeudi in French, giovedi in Italian). Jupiter was a chief Roman god, the god of laws and social order. His attribute was a thunderbolt.
