WODEN

Germanic Ruler God

Also known as Wōden, Wodan, Wotan, Wodin, Uuôden

God of Wednesday

He’s the Germanic version of ODIN, so it should really be called Odinsday.

There is more. The Persians called it Red Letter Day as that was the day the Moon was created. The last Wednesday in November is called Black Wednesday but don’t ask us why. Also hints of MERCURY.
