Monday's child is fair of face,
Tuesday's child is full of grace,
Wednesday's child is full of woe,
Thursday's child has far to go,
Friday's child is loving and giving,
Saturday's child works hard for its living,
But the child that's born on the Sabbath day
Is bonny and blithe, and good and gay.
Information About A Week Of Birthdays
The song "A Week of Birthdays" is also known as "Monday's Child". 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.
