"Waarom lusten onze kinderen geen fruit op donderdag?"
Translation:Why do our children dislike fruit on Thursday?
Interesting, the word dondersdag sounds like thunder day, and Thor was the god of thunder. Thus in English we call it Thors-day (Thursday).
This is the case in many languages. Although we got it from Donar, the old high Germanic word for Thor.
Thor is also the root word for thunder in general in many languages.
Interesting indeed. In Latin languages the day is dedicated to Juppiter the Latin god of thunder.
