### Re: Mars

You head out to Florida and go to the beach. You look at all that water and sometimes it is green and sometimes it is blue. Yet, when you pour a glass of it it is clear?!

Hi;

In Bengali, "Tuesday" is called "Mangal Baar"("Baar" means day in Bengali). And "Mangal" means Mars.
And similarly "Tues" is called Mars?

Half a year late, but: the Romans named the days of the week after their gods. All other cultures eventually adopted the Roman naming convention, but some of them translated the god names to the names of equivalent gods in their own culture.

The Germanic tribes did this. Their god of war was named "Tir" or "Tew", depending on the dialect. So they changed Mars to Tew, which by the time it reached English had morphed into "Tues". European languages generally use a variant of either Mars or Tew as the name for this day.

The Germanic tribes has no god equivalent to Saturn, though, so they kept the Roman name for the last day of the week. That is why in English we have Germanic gods for the first 6 days, but a Roman god for the 7th.
