What is the etymology of Παρασκευή? Is it something to do with the Holy Ghost? In France, it is sometimes called the Paraclet.

It means "production" and it refers to the production of goods, in other words the preparation for the (supposedly) most holy day of the week, Saturday. The "moving" of holiness from Saturday to Sunday happened in later years.
