Halcyon is a word that refers to a state of calmness or tranquility, or to a time or period in the past that is remembered as being especially peaceful or happy. It is derived from the Greek myth of Halcyon, a kingfisher who was said to calm the waves during the winter solstice, allowing his mate to lay their eggs in a nest floating on the sea. The term “halcyon days” is often used to refer to a time in the past that was particularly happy or peaceful.
