My mother told me this old saying when babies are born.
"Born on Monday fair a face,
Born on Tuesday full of grace,
Born on Wednesday merry and glad,
Born on Thursday far to go,
Born on Friday loving and giving,
Born on Saturday work for a living,
Born on Sunday never shall want."
Friday is looked upon as a lucky day.
Saturday is looked upon as an unlucky day.
