Thursday is named after Thor, the Norse god of thunder. As you may have seen via recent media, namely the movie that is coming out that bears his name, Thor is well known for his giant hammer, Mjolnir. This hammer had the ability to return to Thor’s hand when thrown. Even with all his strength, he wore a belt that doubled his strength. He is known for his temper and was a dangerous warrior.
Thor was a favorite god among the working class. Many wore necklaces of Thor’s Hammer and asked him for blessings of fertility.
So, I hope you had a good day. Go bash someone who deserves it. 😉
