To say "happy Wednesday" in French say bon mercredi.
Certainly,. it is a standard Catholic Practice of the beginning of Lent.
Wednesday is spelled 'mercredi' in French.
Answer Wednesday comes from the Middle English Wednes dei, which is from Old English Wēdnes dæg, meaning the day of the Germanic god Woden who was a god of the …Anglo-Saxons in England until about the 7th century.

Well... it isn't. The usual day off in France is, like in most historically Christian countries, Sunday. On the other hand, some primary schools close on Wednesdays and work… with children only four days a week. To make up for it, they have shorter holidays. This scheme was implemented in a limited number of regions in France, just to see if children managed to learn more efficiently on a four-days-a-week basis. Following a government review, it was proven relatively ineffective and free Wednesdays might disappear next year. Although assuming that the question is referring to this Wednesday (February 2), that particular day is La Chandeleur, which is celebrated with crêpes in France. La Chandeleur is otherwise known as Candlemas, or the Feast of the Presentation of Jesus at the Temple.
On Wednesday, such as "on Wednesday, I'll go to the dentist's office at 4 pm."
Because of Woden, aka Odin, the leader of the Norse Gods. Wednesday is a corruption of "Woden's Day". Wednesday through Friday are named for Norse Gods.
The easiest way to say "I'll see you on Wednesday" would be simply "à mercredi !" but to be more literal you could say "je te vois mercredi" or "je te verrai mercredi"
It is the first day of Lent in the Christian Church, a day which is always a Wednesday.
Maybe it will be spelled that way one day. Wednesday celebrates the god Odin, in the same way that Thursday celebrates Thor and Saturday celebrates Saturn. So at one point the… day was referred to as Odin's Day, or Wodin's Day. Pronunciations changed over the centuries, and spelling has become more or less standardized roughly over the last century. As English continues to grow and change, the spelling of the day may become Wensday, or maybe even Ensday. But even in these spellings, you can still see how the word stays connected to its roots in the name Odin, or Wodin.
