Monday's Child

Information About Monday's Child

The song "Monday's Child" is also known as "A Week of Birthdays. " The song's origin is uncertain; however the first record dates back to 1838 in A. E Bray's Traditions of Devonshire, and by the mid 19th century the song had been collected by James Orchard Halliwell.

The song attempts to predict a child's future or character based on the day of the week the child was born; these characteristics attributed to each day have changed over time.
