alt textHAPPY HUMP DAY !!!!alt text

Wednesday is considered either the third or the fourth day of the week, between Tuesday and Thursday. The name comes from the Old English Wodnesdæg meaning the day of the Germanic god Woden who was a god of the Anglo-Saxons in England until about the 7th C. AD.

When Sunday is taken as the first of the week, the day in the middle of each week is Wednesday. Arising from this, the German name for Wednesday has been Mittwoch (literally: "mid-week") since the 10th Century, having displaced the former name: Wodanstag. The Finnish name too is of a fairly functional kind: Keskiviikko (literally: "center of the week").

According to the Bible, Wednesday is the day when the Sun and Moon were created.

Wednesday is also in the middle of the common 5-day working week from Monday through Friday. However, see also Thursday and ISO 8601.

In Spanish, miércoles is used to mean Wednesday, but also as a semi-rude euphemism for mierda (shit).

An English language idiom for Wednesday is "hump day", a reference to making it through the middle of the work week as getting "over the hump". It is also unofficially (and with some irony) referred to as "the peak of the week".

Quakers traditionally refer to Wednesday as "Fourth Day", eschewing the pagan origin of the name "Wednesday". Most eastern languages also use a name with this meaning, for much the same reason. Faithful Orthodox Christians observe a vegetarian / fish-only fast on Wednesdays (and Fridays) in some countries.

Hope everyone had a good day!

Monday, we had a foot of snow with ice underneath some areas, and some heavy winds. Overnight tonight and tomorrow we could get six more inches of snow. Temperature is only 26 right now. Yikes! Where is spring??? LOL :cool:

We didn't have it that good in South Florida, either.

Monday and Tuesday we had upper 80's. Then, Wednesday, a cold front came through and the temperature plummeted into the LOW 80's!!!
