Word Trivia #1

Wednesday Word Trivia info is derived from the writings of the late Word and Trivia Researcher L.M. Boyd.

Today’s Trivia:

Makers of medieval calendars marked two days of each month as evil days.

They were called the “Dies Mali,” days during which nothing good was supposed to happen.

Their label eventually became our word “dismal.”
