〜Seasonal phrase 玄鳥至〜

The seasonal phrase for about a week starting today is this, namely, “swallows arrive” migrating from south.  The characters in the phrase literally mean “black birds come”.  Now, I remember swallows used to come and build nests every spring at the entrance of my mother’s natal home.  I also remember people were happy to have them, believing the birds bring happiness.
