Szia,

Mára nem zenét, hanem egy rövid olvasmányt hoztam, amely elmeséli a napok nevének az eredetét (az angol nyelvű elnevezésekre vonatkozólag). Holnap is ezzel a témával fogunkfoglalkozni, azonban ismét visszatérünk a dalokhoz.

Ha szeretnél szabadidődben még többet angolozni, akkor ajánlom figyelmedbe az 5 Perc Angol Magazin januári számát, amelyből itt találsz egy kis ízelítőt:

THE ORIGIN OF THE NAMES OF THE DAYS

In ancient times, the Babylonian day began with sunriseand with sunsetamong other people. The earliest method of measuring parts of the day used the sun's shadow. Sundials, for example, divided the length of daylight into the same number of parts regardless ofseason. Later, an improvementwas made when days were divided into equalparts by using the rate at which water or sand ran out of a container.

The seven days became the standard with the Babylonians. Each day of the week had a special meaning: Sunday (Sun's day), Monday (Moon's day), Tuesday (named for Mars), Wednesday (named for Mercury), Thursday (named for Jupiter), Friday (named for Venus), Saturday (named for Saturn).

Have you ever wondered how the names of the Days of the Week originated? The Roman peoples, as did other ancientcivilizations, named the days of the week after the sun, moon and planets, which were gods.

Sunday:

  • Meaning: The Sun's day
  • Order in Week: Sunday was traditionally viewed as the first day of the week by the ancient Hebrews and a day of rest and worship.
  • Folklore: Sunday was believed to be a lucky day for babies born.

Monday:

  • Meaning: The Moon's day
  • Order in Week: Monday was traditionally viewed as the second day of the week.
  • Folklore: It was believed by ancients that there were three Mondays during the year that were considered to beunlucky: first Monday in April, second in August and last in December.

Tuesday:

  • Meaning: Tiw's day; the Old Norse's equivalent to planet and god of Mars
  • Order in Week: traditionally viewed as the third day of the week
  • Folklore: Mars was the Roman god of war.

  • Folklore: In the Roman calendar, the fifth day was called in Latin dies Jovis, meaning "Jove's day," for Jove, or Jupiter, the god of thunderand rain.

  • Meaning: Frigg's/ Frica's day: Old Norse's equivalent to Venus
