There is no Norse god associated with this day, therefore it is the only Roman named day of the week.
Saturdays are traditionally days to work on protection, remove obstacles, bind troublesome or dangerous individuals and banish negativity.
Saturdays are like a magickal "let's clean house" day.
There is a Roman festival named for Saturn called the Saturnalia, which begins on December 17 and runs through the 23rd. This seven day midwinter festival was a time of gift giving, feasts and partying. Traditional gifts were candles, clay figurines of the gods and goddesses and silver. Decorations included wreathes and fresh garlands hung above the doorways.
