Does Thor use the serrated head of Mjölnir for Merstone only or is it more like one type for every weekday?

I want one of those signs...

The sign must have been put up on a Thorsday. I never could get the hang of Thorsdays. Are there any Thingites left at H2G2?

I encountered it when I was out for a 16-mile run and snapped it on a phone. Well, I say 16-mile smiley - run, more like 14 miles of running and the last two were limping…

I didn't know I was one, but now that I checked I fully support the cause. Does saying that on Thing give the statement extra power (I love extra powers)

As a proof of commitment, here follows an account of previous accomplisments regarding the so called "thursday"

In Dutch Thing is called Donderdag. Since Don is a male first name this is incorrect. Meaning the day of Don, it should not be "Don d'r dag" (female) but "Don z'n dag" (male). Thing would solve this problem.

I thought donder meant thunder, which was Thor's specialty. Donder was Blitzen's partner when Santa made his rounds. Don't get excited, Santa's reindeer must be female, as they are the only ones who still have their antlers in December. (The males drop their antlers in November, though you can confuse them by hiding their calendars smiley - winkeye)

Interesting information about the antlers. Since I am not Gaston (from beauty and the beast), that is a bit outside my area of expertise.

Donder does indeed mean Thunder. But from the perspective of Don it also insinuates posession of the female persuasion. Thus it didn't feel like it really was his day.

I've always assumed that at least one of the reindeer, Vixen, was female - but I'm prepared to believe that a subspecies of reindeer that can fly and give a smiley - gift to every child on smiley - earth in one night may well also have males with antlers in December. For me, the having antlers one month late isn't the most unbelievable part of the story smiley - santa.

Good point. Really good point. Or points.

We don't have that problem here. Sinterklaas rides a horse and comes from Spain in a steamboat, together with his recently politically rectified helpers. (that last bit was the problematic part)

See? no antlers.

And in Italy, Befana travels on a broom. She comes down the chimney. If there are children, she leaves gifts. If not, she sweeps the floor. I will retell the Befana story in my NaJoPoMo.
