Thats just it. We use the old Norse names because
of tradition, thats how our parents named the days,
not because we worship the old Norse gods. Its in
Similarly its in the language is why Aramaic
speaking Jews would use the Aramaic names for
the months even though not worshipping the
Babylonian gods. If they were still speaking
Hebrew as their primary tongue, would they
not continue to use the Hebrew names for the
months? If not, why not?
