I often get lots of funny phrases and questions in my search terms and I always say that one day I will do a post on them. Something about this latest one prompted me to seize the day. When you come to Linus with questions, you get answers!
Why do witches like Wednesday?
I don’t know that all witches like Wednesday, but in The Wednesday Witch, by Ruth Chew (one of my favorite books of all time), the witch was partial to Wednesday because it was the day on which she had been born, and as a result her powers were stronger on that day more so than any other day. Any spell that she wanted to cast would work better than it normally would otherwise.
If there were one day of the week where you were guaranteed to get more bang for your buck, wouldn’t you like it too? When you follow this logic there are indeed a number of witches who will enjoy Wednesday, but I would hazard a guess that a good number of them enjoy Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday and Tuesday as well. I’m partial to Thursday myself.
Not that I’m implying that I am a witch or anything. Just saying. What’s your favorite day of the week? Is the day you were born special to you or do you have another day when your mojo is in top form?
