Thor gave his name to the Old English day Þunresdæg, meaning the day of Þunor, known in Modern English as Thursday. Þunor is also the source of the modern word thunder.
"Thor's Day" is Þórsdagr in Old Norse, Doresdak ðorestak in Northern Sami , Tuoresdag in Swedish- and Southern Sami ,Hósdagur in Faroese, except for Suðuroy, where it's called Tórsdagur, Thursday in English, Donnerstag in German (meaning "Thunder's Day"), Donderdag in Dutch (meaning Thunder day), Torstai in Finnish, and Torsdag in Swedish, Danish, and Norwegian.
The day was considered such an important day of the week that as late as the seventh century Saint Eligius reproached his congregation in Flanders for continuing their native practice of recognizing Thursday as a holy day after their Christianization.

Danish slang term for cannabis for joints. The term was invented by danish rock band Gasolin' in the seventies, because they needed a secret word for cannabis that they could say out loud without being understood by stangers. They were inspired by a faroese ship named Tjaldur, that was docked in Copenhagen at the time. (Tjaldur is the faroese word for an oystercatcher, the national faroese bird.)
Today 'tjald' is a very common name for cannabis in Denmark, closely connected to hippie and smoker-cultures. It is also quite handy to have in mind as a foreginer, when visiting Denmark.
- Dude, wanna smoke some tjald?
- Sure, let's do it.
