From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Wednesday is considered either the third or the fourth day of the week, between Tuesday and Thursday. The name comes from the Old English Wódenesdæg meaning the day of Woden, commonly known as Odin in Modern English. The astrological sign of the planet Mercury represents Wednesday, which was Dies Mercurii to the Romans. In English, this became Woden's Day, since the Roman god Mercury was identified with the Germanic god Woden in northern Europe.

When Sunday is taken as the first of the week, the day in the middle of the following week is Wednesday. Correspondingly, the German name for Wednesday has been Mittwoch (literally: "mid-week") since the 10th Century, having displaced the original name: Wodanstag.

According to the Bible, Wednesday is the day that the Sun and Moon were created.

Wednesday is also in the middle of the common working week from Monday through Friday. However, see also Thursday and ISO 8601.

In the popular rhyme, "Wednesday's Child is full of woe".

In Spanish, miércoles is used to mean Wednesday, but also as a semi-rude euphemism for never ever.

An English language idiom for Wednesday is "hump day", a reference to making it through the middle of work week as getting "over the hump". It is also unoffically (and with some irony) referred to as "the peak of the week".

Quakers traditionally refer to Wednesday as "Fourth Day" eschewing the "pagan" origin of the name "Wednesday".

The film Angel Heart includes a scene where Harry Angel refers to Wednesday as "Anything Can Happen Day," in reference to the original Mickey Mouse Club television program.
