In America, Wednesday is called hump day and it is normal working day. It is a modern tradition in American English to refer Wednesday as hump day. The reason that why Wednesday called the hump day is that the term hump day represents a week as a hill which a person climbs, so Wednesday typically being the mid of the week or peak of the week. According to folk literature, Wednesday may be visualized as unhappy days, gray days or unlucky days. An old rhyme describes that children born on Wednesday are “full of woe”. For a number of people, the arrival of hump day is basis for cheering even the day is gray or windy.
There are some disagreements or negative associations over Wednesday as hump day. The reason is, it depends on how a week begins and when a person will do work. One reason of disagreement is that few holidays are also celebrated on this day. There is a conflict about whether Wednesday is a hump day or not. As many people worked six days a week and they had only Sunday for rest. Few people then narrated Thursday as a hump day. If we look at a seven-day week course that begins on Monday, Thursday being the fourth day of the week which is in the direct middle will be called as hump day. For many people Sunday is the beginning of the week and that makes Wednesday the truly middle of the week. For those people whose working schedule is other than Monday to Friday, there may be some other middle day as hump day which could be appropriate for them. According to Islam, Friday is the day of rest so it means Monday would be considered as hump day. It thoroughly depends on the culture we are living in.
