Hump Day is the middle of the week ie. “Wednesday”. The phrase “Hump Day” could have originated in the 20th Century, but it is unknown who made the phrase.
Why is Wednesday ‘Hump Day’?
Wednesday is in the middle of the week, so if you were climbing over a hill, it would be the tallest part.
The mid-week day can be associated with boredom and lack of motivation, but once getting past the ‘hump’ of Wednesday, you’re on the easy journey to the weekend, so it’s no wonder people get excited.
Having made it through Monday and Tuesday, many people need a little extra motivation to get to the weekend, and use the term ‘hump day’
Most other days can be defined by hump day. Tuesday is the day before hump day. Thursday is one day after hump day. Except for Friday which is the FREEDOM day ~ TGIF!!! Day, Saturday is mostly the cool Hungover day, and Sunday is PreDoom day.
