Why is only one of the German days of the week Bowdlerized? Every day (Donnerstag, Samstag, Freitag, etc) is a reference to the old pagan religions, but for some reason Wodenstag got the axe, and is now the bland "Mittwochs." I suspect it's Christian influences, but if so, why did Freya and Thor escape censorship?
