What I heard is that the name "Maundy Thursday" comes from a word for washing, as Jesus washed the feet of his disciples on the evening before his crucifixion.

Maundy is derived from the Latin word for "command," and refers to Jesus' commandment to the disciples to "Love one another as I have loved you." Maundy Thursday commemorates the Last Supper, which Christians consider the institution of Holy Eucharist, also known as the Lord's supper or communion.
We Lutheran's have an evening service with communion.

Here's one for Good Friday...

DYK...the cross wasn't used as a Christian Symbol until the 3rd Century because it was seen as a torture device used by Romans...and we all know that's how Jesus died. Also...many Christians were persecuted between A.D. 30 and A.D. 200, so many Christians kept their faith a secret.

And the initials INRI is Latin for "Iesus Nazarenus, Rex Iudaeorum" which in English read "Jesus of Nazareth, King of the Jews".

Yes, early Christians would have use a fish as their symbol instead.

Here's one for Easter...

DYK...Easter originated from the Anglo-Saxon Tribe through Eostre. Eostre was a pagan celebration of spring and that's where the formation of Easter Eggs and Easter Bunny came from.

Another DYK...Emperor Constantine made Easter fall on the first Sunday after the full moon.

It is related to "Ostern", which is the German word for Easter. There even was a spring goddess named Ostara.

Makes sense...since the Anglo-Saxon are a Germanic Tribe.

But here's a good DYK for today...

Dyngus Day which is celebrated in Slavic Countries is practically known as "Wet Monday" because Polish people around the world would sprinkle people with water.

Exactly. But there is no direct cognate to "Easter" and "Ostern" in the Northern (Scandinavian) branch of the Germanic language family. In Swedish, we call the holiday "påsk". Which is directly derived from the Hebrew name "pesach", and we also use the same word for the Jewish holiday "Passover".

Since today is Earth Day...

The first Earth Day fell on Vladimir Lenin's 100th Birthday which was 1970.

Coincidence...maybe, maybe not.

DYK...

While the current living population is about 7.5 billion, it's estimated that the total number of people who ever lived in human history is 108 billion. So, 6.9% of all the people ever born are alive today.

DYK...The only countries that don't celebrate Labor Day today (May 1st) is the United States, Canada, Jamaica, the Bahamas, Australia, and New Zealand. They celebrate it on another day.

DYK - The largest earthquake in American history, the New Madrid Earthquake occurred in the winter of 1811-12 in northwestern Tennessee. Reelfoot Lake located in Obion and Lake Counties was formed during this earthquake.

There were very few people living in the area at the time so there were few casualties. Also it was said that the Mississippi River ran backwards. If interested here is a Wiki link about the quake.

^ I'd hate to think of the loss of life if it were to happen again in the near future.
