The Gods of central Europe and the Anglo-Saxons...


Anglo-Saxon Ruler God

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

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.
