Tuesday- comes from the Old English term of “Tiwesdaeg” (Tyr’s Day) Tyr the god of Honour and Justice. Try is the glorious Nordic God of single combat and bold heroic glory in Norse Mythology. The name is based on Latin dies Martis (Day of Mars). Mars was the Roman god of war.
Now Tyr is a very special god, his offer of self-sacrifice is to forever be remembered and cherished. Tyr lost his hand to giant wolf Fenrir so the Giant wolf could be bound. More on that another day.
