Why Do We Call It “Hump Day”?
Wednesday. Mid-week relief. Hump Day. Who came up with the term "Hump Day", anyway? Enquiring minds want to know!
According to the website The Front Porch, here's a little insight:
The Urban Dictionarydefinition of Hump Day is as follows:
Wednesday, or the hump of the week
The absolute BEST day of the week, the day of maximum hope that maybe, you might make it out of this week alive. A particularly good hump day can last you the rest of the week, and by Doomday morning (Monday) you survive by anticipating hump day. Nothing goes wrong on hump day
Most other days can be defined by hump day. Tuesday is the day before hump day. Thursday is one day after hump day. Except Friday is WOOOH!!! FREEDOM!!! Day, Saturday is Mostly Hungover day, and Sunday is PreDoom day.
Contrary to popular opinion, Wednesday is no longer the bad guy of the week. Tuesday is a combination of getting over your case of the ‘Monday’s’ while still fighting the uphill climb. Thursday is one day after “Hump Day” but not quite the weekend.
So there you go! Enjoy your day!
