Have you heard of Alkionides Mehres? Here is a cut from the old Skopelitissa:
A strange phenomena that
happens every winter. Days with unbelievable warm and calm weather, mostly in January, but could happen in December! In 2010 we probably had it around New Year; at New Years Eve we sat outside until 3,30 in the morning, – that has never happened before.
Why this; “From Latin Alcyone, daughter of Aeolus and wife of Ceyx. When her husband died in a shipwreck, Alcyone threw herself into the sea whereupon the gods transformed them both into halcyon birds (kingfishers). When Alcyone made her nest on the beach, waves threatened to destroy it. Aeolus restrained his winds and made the waves be calm during seven days in each year, so she could lay her eggs. These became known as the “halcyon days”, when storms never occur.”
– said Wikipedia
One of the stars of the Pleiades star cluster, named after the mythical character.
The kingfisher has been seen
in Blo, Panormos.
I really want some warmer weather!
When will the Alkyon Days be here?
Have a wonderful day and dream of sunny days on Skopelos!
