Being a child born on the Sabbath day myself, I am quite keen on this rhyme. Most of the days of the week are named for Norse gods. Tuesday for Tyr, the god of single combat; Wednesday for Woden or Odin , omni-ocular king of the gods; Thursay for Thor, god of thunder. Friday is named for Freya, goddess of love. Saturday is named for Saturn, Roman god of farming, Sunday for the sun and Monday for the moon.
Today both versions are equally popular. Find out what day of the week you were born on here.

One son is Friday and the other Monday. Hubby is Wednesday Messages: 5, Likes Received: 1, Trophy Points: If anybody doesn't know what day they were born on Google Swiss Ephemeris????
Messages: 4, Likes Received: 3, Trophy Points: Monday - certainly true with me. My own daughter was born on a Thursday. And has yet - far to go too.
She claims to know everything to me - her mother Always shouts I know! Always been miserable n morose in mood and expression. Is this classed as full of 'woe'? Hubby was born on a Sunday - very sweetnatured easygoing and always loving n positive. Spot on - I would say for him Mum was on born a Saturday - even now at 83yrs old works hard still - a very strong active lady.
Up at dawn - doing the ironing!

Irons everything too - even all their underwear. I keep telling her - why bother?
