Today I learnt from a coworker that in some parts of Germany they call Wednesday Bergfest (mountain celebration), because it’s the peak of the week, and from there on you just wind down. My German teacher used to call Wednesdays hump days [!] for the same reason. 

Not only Wednesdays. It can also refer to the middle of other time spans than a week, like e.g. a 2-week vacation’s “Bergfest” on day 7.

♚ Jaime and Brienne 30 Day Challenge
↳ Day 2: Your go to passage to prove you're not crazy to nonshippers
At Harrenhal the tubs had been huge, and made of stone. The bathhouse had been thick with the steam rising off the water, and Jaime had come walking through that mist naked as his name day, looking half a corpse and half a god. He climbed into the tub with me, she remembered, blushing. She seized a chunk of hard lye soap and scrubbed under her arms, trying to call up Renly’s face again.
