Statistics Saturday: The Forgotten Days


The most popular forgotten days of the week:

  1. Bragiday (traditional day for the complaining about the poetry of others)
  2. Hellinsday (traditional day for doctor’s appointments and hacky jokes about hospital gift shops)
  3. Tuesday (except in its two-fer form)
  4. Meimeirsday (good for running about like one’s head had been cut off; removed by the Council of Nicaea and put aside “for Miss Manners”)
  5. Sagasday (nobody knows when this was)
  6. Ransday (day of the sea and/or misunderstood Paul McCartney albums)
  7. Wednesday (the remake; lost in the 1922 calendar reboot)
  8. Gefjunday (position in the week given away to Bragiday, then left in the back of the closet until it was forgotten)
  9. Hoenirsday (no records of it, sorry)
  10. Voersday (traditional day for realizing what you should have said instead; in French, le jour d’escalier, the day for remembering one should have pushed someone down the escalator)
