Something I didn't know before but may be self-evident to Japanese people and polyglots is that Japanese days of the week are auto-translated to:
Sunday - Day Monday - MonthTuesday - FireWednesday - WaterThursday - WoodFriday - GoldSaturday - Earth
Looking into these translations a little further shows they have the same astronomical origins as most Indo-European languages including English, the weekdays of which we inherit from the Norse and Roman pantheons, and have a presumably much older common astro-theological origin. There is an interesting Astronomy FAQ which details the connections for some European languages and it corresponds nicely with this website: Japanese Days of the Week: the 'Seven Luminaries' which explains the links between the elemental forces of the Japanese day names to the same solar bodies as the Indo-European days, namely:
Sunday - SunMonday - MoonTuesday - MarsWednesday - MercuryThursday - JupiterFriday - VenusSaturday - SaturnWhere was I? Oh yes, Informix blogs. If anyone has links to other non-English Informix blogs please let me know so I can add them to the list.[Read More]
