Today is Tuesday, named for Tiw or Tyr, the the Norse god of combat, victory and heroic glory. He’s analogous to, and regularly identified with both the planet and the Roman god of war,Â Mars – which explains why languages that are Latin-based all have words based around â€œmarsâ€ for their names for this second day of the week. Italians call it MartedÃ¬, The Spanish call it Martes, and the French call it Mardi.
Me? I just call it â€œone day closer to the weekend.â€
