Where did Monday get it's name?

moonday.htm_txt_magic_cirkle_05_cmpHave you wondered why Monday is called "Monday"? It was originally "Moonday". The history on that is Old English Mōnandæg and Middle English Monenday, which means "moon day". This day of the week is internationally named in tribute to the Moon.
