The twenty sixth of January 2019


Oh hello, Saturday! Interestingly, Saturday is the only day of the week that has kept its name from Roman times, and was named for the Roman god (and the planet) Saturn. Saturn was the Roman god of agriculture and likely was derived both from the Greek god Cronus and the Etruscan god Satre. According to legend, after Saturn was exiled from Mount Olympus by Zeus,  he settled in Latium, what would later become Rome, and taught the people how to farm. It is true that you reap what you sow, so make sure that you plant something wonderful to enjoy later.


In ancient Rome, Saturn was the god of agriculture, and now he is the namesake for Saturdays. Amazing.
