Happy Christmas from Dreaming on a Star!

Hello everyone! December was an exceptionally busy one for Dreaming on a Star with 11 Christmas Markets!

But I managed to find some time to create an Advent doodle a day and here is the result. I challenged myself by using a limited palette and my influences were modern Scandi. I hope you like it!

Happy Tuesday!

On 22, Apr 2014 | No Comments | In illustration, my work, seasonal | By Tina

Hi everyone! Today I would like to wish you all a Happy Tuesday!

Happy Tuesday from Dreaming on a Star

Happy Tuesday from Dreaming on a Star

Tuesday gets a bad wrap – or it actually gets no wrap at all! It’s lost in the twilight zone of early/mid-week, not quite either/or.

We all know that Monday is the start of the week and many people complain about it. Wednesday is mid week (in fact in German, it is Mittwoch, which literally translates as that). Thursday is usually late open for some shops and some lucky people get paid on a Thursday. Everyone loves Fridays. Saturday and Sundays are the weekend of course. So unfortunately Tuesday gets looked over.

So today I would like to praise Tuesday! Here is some cool facts about Tuesday!

  • The name Tuesday derives from the Old English “Tiwesdæg” and literally means “Tiw’s Day”. Tiw or Týr in Norse is a God of war and law.
  • In Latin, Tuesday is dies Martis and means Day of Mars. In languages of Latin origin (French, Spanish, Italian, etc) it is also named after Mars, the God of War.
  • In Japanese and Korean, Tuesday translates as Fire Day (Mars, the planet is called Fire Star).
  • In the Indo-Aryan languages Pali and Sanskrit, as well as in Thailand, the name of the day is taken from Angaraka (‘one who is red in colour’) a style for Mangal, the god of war, and for Mars, the red planet.

So it looks like many cultures associated Tuesday with Mars, the planet and the ancient Roman God of War.
So Tuesday is a FIRE DAY! A day to get things done! If you have fire at the start of the week, it will give you the momentum to get through the week with gusto!

I hope you appreciate this forgotten day a bit more! Happy Tuesday – Happy Fire Day to you!
