Throwback Thorsday

Sooo back in the day, right?  Turns out there wouldn’t be a Throwback Thursday if it weren’t for this dude   Thor used lightning as a weapon. This led to the practice of hanging holly in one’s house for protection, since holly trees are excellent for conducting lightning into the ground.  Yet Thor continued to kick ass, so the Norse Folk said:  “Let’s name something after him.”  The day after Wednesday happened to be free, resulting in Thor’s day, now known as THURSDAY.
