Halcyon Days Begin Today

Halcyon Days
While the term has come to mean happiness or contentment, Halcyon Days are actually the fourteen days surrounding the Winter Solstice, beginning today.

The term originates in Greek legend, marking the time when the gods calmed the seas so the halcyon, or kingfisher, could build its floating nest. Today, the term is often used to refer to the peaceful, happier days of a person’s past. In recognition, we’ve selected three books with dual time lines, past and present.
