Friday, Freya's Day

We got our names of the days of the week from the Norse Germanic pagans. Friday to them was Freya's Day. Freya was the goddess of fertility, sexuality, magic and divination. She was also the leader of the Valkyries, who would bring the dead to the feasting halls of the afterlife.

Interesting how all these many centuries later, Friday still maintains its place a one of the big date nights, where all kinds of sexual play and magic are in most people's plans for the evening.

Whatever we do on Friday night is a kickoff to the weekend, and certainly fitting in terms of Freya's spirit.

Tonight, raise a toast to the goddess who created the spirit of Friday nights! Let magic flavor whatever you do, with whoever you do it. Happy Friday!
