In Danish:

Mandag -> From moonday
Tirsdag -> From the nordic god Tyr
Onsdag -> From the nordic god Odin
Torsdag -> From the nordic god Thor
Fredag -> From the norcid god Freja
Lørdag -> Lør is old nordic for shower - so shower day :-)
Søndag -> Depending on the source - either it comes from Son of God (Jesus) or sun

So, there you have. The nordic people have arrived early in history :)
...that implies, that Danes only shower once a week :P VILDERE!

You're wrong. The days of the week are named after beers:

Mandag -> named after MANDAGSBAJER!
Tirsdag -> named after TIRSDAGSBAJER!
Onsdag -> named after ONSDAGSBAJER!
Torsdag -> named after TORSDAGSBAJER!
Fredag -> named after FREDAGSBAJER!
Lørdag -> named after LØRDAGSBAJER!
Søndag -> named after SØNDAGSBAJER!

Curiously, all these beers are sold in the same packaging:

They also taste alike, except for SØNDAGSBAJER! which is more bitter. It is traditionally a morning drink, however, enjoyed not so much for its taste but rather for its medicinal properties (specifically, alleviating the side effects of LØRDAGSBAJER!)
