Dude, it's Friday

Fridays are the best, aren't they? You've got the promise of a whole weekend in front of you, the chance to have fun, relax, get something accomplished or do nothing at all. You might be staying home, you might be traveling, you might be entertaining friends or enjoying some solitude. The possibilities are endless and whatever you make of them.

Fridays can be Good Fridays, Black Fridays or Casual Fridays. (And occasionally Freaky Friday.) We Thank God It's Friday but hope it's not Friday the 13th. Friday was named in honor of the Norse goddess Frigg, but to the Romans the day was sacred to the goddess Venus, and was known as dies veneris.

In French, Friday is vendredi. In Italian: venerdi; Spanish: viernes; German: Freitag ; Dutch: vrijdag. How ever you say it, it still means most of us don't have to work tomorrow. How are you spending your Friday and what are your plans for the weekend?

  1. I'd feel better about it if I wasn't being forced to work tomorrow as well. Do these people not now I have a book to finish writing?

  2. Hubby is coming home early and we're hitting the beach. Tomorrow we're going to "Night in Venice" a boat parade.

  3. We are leaving for a family reunion tonight, but it will be at a park tomorrow and they are predicting rain and thunderstorms. Won't that be lovely? I'll protect the desserts on the food table with my life:)
