Thursday is the fifth day of the week. In the Norse languages this day is called Torsdag, honoring Thor, the god of strength, fertility, thunder, the protector and defender in war, and son of Odin. Thor is the counterpart of Zeus (Greek), and Jupiter or Jove (Roman). Thor, the most beloved of the great gods of northern mythology, is the only god who cannot cross from earth to heaven across the rainbow bridge, for he is so heavy and powerful that the gods fear it will break under his weight. It was said that whenever his hammer Mjollnir, was thrown, it would produce a thunderbolt and when struck against stone, it would create lightning.
Dies Jovis (“Jove’s Day”), after Jove or Jupiter, the almighty Roman God.
