Tuesday's child is full of grace

Tuesday's child is full of grace

People born on a Tuesday will supposedly be very gracious, agreeable, refined, and polite in manner or behavior. From a nursery rhyme called "Monday's Child" meant to help children remember the days of the week (and predict a child's future). The modern version of the poem commonly reads: 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 a living, And the child that is born on the Sabbath day, Is bonny and blithe, and good and gay. His mother likes to tell people that he was born on a Tuesday, because she likes to boast about how well-mannered he is and "Tuesday's child is full of grace."
