Thank God It's Firday Origin

I was watching a program one day and they were talking about "THANK GOD IT'S FRIDAY" they were curious on where the phrase comes from. I thought about it. I was like, exactly, I have been hearing this phrase and it was even named after by a restaurant but never really clear where and how was it formed. My brain kicked in and by my curiosity I did little research and this is what I've found.

Starting in the United States, it has become a common expression of relief at the end of the work week and anticipation of relaxing or partying over the weekend. The term was originated by the Akron, Ohio disk jockey Jerry Healy on radio station WAKR in the early 1970s. The phrase was further popularized by the 1978 movie starring Donna Summer, Thank God It’s Friday. The phrase has also become common for advertising and promotional materials. On college campuses beginning in the 1970s, the phrase (sometimes shortened to "TG") became associated with Friday afternoon beer parties, usually held outdoors.

Now we sure know where the word came from. Nowadays, the word is used by most people. Employees, students and many more.

The return of the rain-boot trend is a seemingly good idea -- rain boots keep feet dry, protect clothes and make it easy to trudge through both rain and snow.
But along with the return of these handy shoes came rain boots in crazy, bright prints more fit for a 5 year-old than a stylin' chick.
Legendary Hunter boots, the first rubber-boot manufacturer in the U.K., keeps the rain boot looking classy, understated and perfectly fit for its purpose -- whereas many Walmart or Target pairs have taken the functional shoe to the level of cartoon graphic tees and zip-up hoodies.
Still, the mass retailers offer a few stylish rain boots at a fraction of the cost of Hunter boots.
Or even better yet -- this season, try out a variety of the other options for keeping your feet warm and dry, while looking cool and classy at the same time.
