Meaning of Halcyon Days

Halcyon Days means: Originally this expression has its roots in Greek mythology. Halcyone was the daughter of Aeolus (Aeolus custodian of the four winds) and wife of Ceyx. When Ceyx drowned, it is said that Halcyone threw herself into the sea. Out of pity, the gods changed the pair into kingfishers also known as halcyons.
