Thor’s Day

thors-day

Thursday is a weird word. I mean, the days of the week in general give me pause. I love them, don’t get me wrong, but their names and order stump me. Thursday, for example, is named after the Norse God Thor. Often seen like this:

thor-today

He bears a striking resemblance to Chris Hemsworth, don’t you think?

Anyway.

Thor, according to Wikipedia:

In Norse mythology, Thor (/θɔːr/; from Old Norse Þórr) is a hammer-wielding god associated with thunder, lightning, storms, oak trees, strength, the protection of mankind, and also hallowing and fertility.

Pretty broad list, methinks, and a bit random. Oak trees? Fertility? I like the protection of mankind part. Yet what I’ve read about gods in any culture show them to be fickle, with divided loyalties and wandering eyes.

What’s the takeaway? Make it your Thor’s Day. Today is the day to kick butt and take names. Hammer on, friends. Only one more day to go.
