Tiw's Day

Tiw - the god of single combat

Tuesday is a day of the week occurring after Monday and before Wednesday. According to some commonly used calendars (esp. in the US), it is the third day of the week. According to international standard ISO 8601, however, it is the second day of the week. The English name is derived from Old English Tiwesdæg andMiddle English Tewesday, meaning "Tīw's Day", the day of Tiw or Týr, the god of single combat, victory and heroic glory inNorse mythology. Tiw was equated with Mars in the interpretatio germanica, and the name of the day is a translation of Latindies Martis.  ---------------from our friends at WIKI.

Good to know anyway.  I like the Mars part.
