The name Friday comes from the Old English frigedæg, meaning the day of
Frige the Anglo-Saxon form of Frigg, a West Germanic translation of Latin dies Veneris, "day (of the planet) Venus." However, in most Germanic languages the day is named after Freyja—such as Frīatag in Old High German, Freitag in Modern German, Freyjudagr in Old Norse, Vrijdag in Dutch, Fredag in Swedish, Norwegian, and Danish—but Freyja and Frigg are frequently identified with each other.
The word for Friday in most Romance languages is derived from Latin dies Veneris, "day (of the planet) Venus." (a translation of Greek Aphrodites hemera) such as vendredi in French, venerdì in Italian, viernes in Spanish, and vineri in Romanian. In most of the Indian languages, Friday is Shukravar (or a derived variation of Sukravar), named for Shukra, the Sanskrit name of the planet Venus. Russian uses an ordinal number for this day of the week-- piatnítsa, meaning "fifth." Similarly, the Portuguese is sexta-feira, the sixth day.
In astrology Friday is connected with the planet Venus. This associates Friday with love, peace, and relaxation, as well as with emotional intensity and quashed dreams. It is also connected with the Astrological sign Libra.
SO there are lots of reasons why Fridays tend to be a day of the week so many of us in the daily grind might look forward to, and especially because it usually indicates the weekend is here. On that note, I sure wish you all a happy weekend... for those of you who aren't a slave to the daily grind, I applaud you too, and hope that there is something special for your weekend to at least put a smile on your face too.
No matter what you do on a daily basis, you need to stop and smell the roses and have yourself some fun, do something that takes you out of your comfort zone once in a while and reminds you that you're still alive and vibrant... Make this weekend yours!
Going to be quite busy again today so I will leave you all with a cool music video to enjoy (or bitch about, whatever the case may be) :)
This is a dedication to all of my Friends, Family and Friday! You're all "Just What I Needed" (The Cars)
