Warm Weather Attracts People Outdoors Hamilton
Wednesday November 9 2011
The mid-day of the week is named for the Norse God, Odin. He was also known as Woden or Wotan. Unlike many of the other days of the week, this day did not correspond roughly with the Roman designation for the day. (The Roman’s named Wednesday for the Messenger God – Mercury – In Romanian, the day is still known as miercuri). The early Scandanavians and Germans believed that Odin was the chief god of Asgard and as such deserved to have a day of the week named for him. The Anglo-Saxons used the word, Wodnesdaeg.
Wednesday is often referred to as “hump day” because of its position as the middle day of the work week. If the work week were a hill, then Wednesday would be the crest. It is all down hill from there. (Whether the down hill ride is a coast or a descent into a swamp is left to the individual.)
Great weather, mild and sun have made the beginning of November a wonderful treat for many. Myself included, now the shoulder is nearly healed have been ebiking the Harbourfront Trail, Burlington Harbour into Cootes Pardise
