Tuesday is the day for WAR!


Tyr for TuesdayTuesday is named after Tiwaz, a Germanic God of war!

According to Wikipedia: “The name Tuesday derives from the Old English “Tiwesdæg” and literally means “Tiw’s Day”. Tiw is the Old English form of the Proto-Germanic god Tîwaz, or Týr in Norse, a god of war and law. Tîwaz derives from a Proto-Indo-European base *dei-, *deyā-, *dīdyā-, meaning ‘to shine’, whence comes also such words as deity.”
