When we think about Wednesday we usually think that it marks the middle of the working week. This day can sometimes by associated with a lack of motivation, when it really should be a day to rejoice and look forward to the weekend.
Everyone should be excited about Wednesdays because once you get through the “hump”, everything else seems to fall into place and you’ll also be on the easier journey for the rest of the week.
Many people think that Wednesday has a weird spelling and it might be because the name derives from Old English Wōdnesdæg and Middle English Wednesdei (meaning “day of Woden”).
Did you know that in countries like Sweden, Norway and Finland, Wednesday is known as “little Saturday”? That’s because back in the day, all maids used to have time off since they had to work on Saturdays. So they turned Wednesday evenings into a small Saturday-like celebration.
In North America, it is sometimes referred to as “hump day” in an effort to liven up the drudgery of the workweek.
Here are 190 Wednesday quotes to make Hump Day the best day of your week:
