What does Fridays mean?

The word Fridays can be used as an adverb meaning every Friday or on Fridays, as in I work Fridays or The shop is closed Fridays. 

Fridays is of course also the plural of Friday, the name of the weekday between Thursday and Saturday.

When it’s used as an adverb, Fridays describes when something happens or when an action is taken.

The singular form Friday can also be used as an adverb, as in We’re closed Friday or Do you work Friday?

Fridays (ending with an s) usually implies that the action or event is a regular occurrence, such as one that happens according to a schedule. For example, saying, “I work Fridays” means that you work every Friday. In contrast, saying, “I work on Friday” or “I work Friday” typically means that you are scheduled to work on the upcoming Friday.

Where does Fridays come from?

The first records of the word Friday come from before 1000, but the use of Fridays as an adverb is first recorded in the 1200s. The suffix s is used to make it an adverb. It’s used this way in similar time-related words like sometimes and weekdays. You can add this –s suffix to other words to turn them into adverbs, including every other day of the week, as well as words like nights, as in I work nights. 

The word Friday itself comes from the Old English Frīgedæg, meaning “Freya‘s day.” In Latin, the name for the day we call Friday is dies Veneris, meaning “Venus’s day,” referring to the Roman goddess of love. However, the name of the day in many languages is instead based on the name of one of two goddesses from Norse mythology, either the love goddess Freya or chief goddess Frigg (or Frigga), wife of Odin.
