Thursday

Thursday is the day of the week between Wednesday and Friday. Its name is derived from the name of the Saxon god Thor.

By some conventions (see ISO 8601), the Thursdays of a year determine the week numbering: week 1 is defined as the week that contains the first Thursday of the year, and so on.

In the United Kingdom, elections are normally held on Thursdays.
