Gentle Tuesday: Tuesday Songs

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

Yes, I'm doing this for a week. Yeah, I meant to start on a Tuesday (as far as you know). And why not? 'Tis a fine day, arguably the most important day in my country, the United States. Tuesdays are generally when we hold elections, after all, and when we distribute free stickers allowing Americans to proudly proclaim that they have voted.

Tuesday was first named for the Roman God of War, Martius. When England was conquered by Germanic tribes, the day's name was changed to tiwesdaeg in recognition of the Norse God of War, Tyr or Tiw.

Tuesdays are thought unlucky in Greece (the Fall of Constantinople occurred on a Tuesday) and in the "Spanish-speaking world."

Ah, but without Tuesdays there could be no Mardi Gras. And "Tuesday's child is full of grace". Without Tuesday's children, there would be a lot more clumsy people, and they'd likely go around accidentally injuring others. You can find out what day of the week you were born here and its alleged meaning here.
