The Friday Five - Your Favorite Day of the Week

If it's snowing, I'm not here, but you're in luck. I didn't forget about you on this, the day of Fri. Actually, the day gets its name from Old English meaning 'day of Frigg'. Frigg being a Norse goddess. Which lead us into: Stuff about Fridays

1) Wikipedia says Friday is between Thursday and Saturday. Who knew? In some countries, Friday is the first day of the weekend, followed by Saturday as the last day.

2) In many Christian ruled countries, it's believed there's bad luck in starting a journey on a Friday. Combined with the 13th, it's particularly hazardous.

Not that Venus!
3) Fridays are associated with the planet Venus.

4) In the UK, Friday is sometimes known as POETS Day, which stands for Piss Off Early Tomorrow's Saturday.

5) In Scottish lore, Good Friday is a favorite day for planting potatoes.

That's all I've got for you, kiddies. Now run along. Try to stay bundled in your beds if it's snowy and wintry where you are. If it isn't, I feel deep envy, because someone stole my spring.

Go, be, do.
