Szia!

Ma az 'id?' tárgyalásával kapcsolatban megnézzük, hogy honnan ered a napok neve! A rövid kis olvasmányhoz készítettem egy rövid kis szószedetet is :) Hétvégén pedig tanulj egy kicsit, csinálj meg egy-két tesztet, vagy olvass valamit angolul (pl.: www.thesun.co.uk) vagy nézz meg egy filmet angolul (haladók angol felirattal, kevésbé haladók pedig magyar felirattal).

Én pedig (hogy tanuljak én is valamit :) megnézem a csirkéket és a lovakat közelebbr?l :) Rókát már láttam, kett?t is tegnap hazafelé az úton. A hétvégén elmegyek felfedezni az 'új otthont' (azt már tudom, hogy a boltok nincsenek nyitva 8 után...), és ígérem, közben kitalálok valami jó kis témát jöv? hétre is :)

Üdv,
Nóri

THE ORIGIN OF THE NAMES OF THE DAYS

In ancient times, the Babylonian day began with sunrise and with sunset among 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 of season. Later, an improvement was made when days were divided into equal parts 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 ancient civilizations, 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 be unlucky: 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.

Wednesday:

  • Meaning: Woden's day: the Old Norse's equivalent to Mercury
  • Order in Week: Wednesday was traditionally viewed as the fourth day of the week.
  • Folklore: Mercury was the messenger to the gods and the Roman god of commerce, travel, and science.

Thursday:

  • Meaning: Thor's day: Old Norse's equivalent to Jupiter
  • Order in Week: Thursday was traditionally viewed as the fifth day of the week.
  • 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 thunder and rain.

Friday:

  • Meaning: Frigg's/ Frica's day: Old Norse's equivalent to Venus
  • Order in Week: Friday was traditionally viewed as the sixth day of the week.
  • Folklore: Friday was held sacred to Venus, the goddess of love, by the Romans.

Saturday:

  • Meaning: Saturn's day
  • Order in Week: Saturday was traditionally viewed as the seventh day of the week.
  • Folklore: Saturday was named in honor of the Roman god, Saturn. The Hebrew called Saturday the "Sabbath", meaning, day of rest. The Bible identifies Saturday a s the last day of the week.
