Φιλεί η Πηλειά τα όρη
μα φιλεί κι ο νιός την κόρη
Pleiades, or Seven Sisters, is a star cluster located in the constellation of Taurus. It is among the nearest star clusters to Earth and is the cluster most obvious to the naked eye in the night sky. According to ancient greek mythology, Pleiades were seven sisters, daughters of the Titan Atlas and attendants of the goddess Artemis.
In recent years our people consider Pleiades as a star, which he calls Pileia in Crete and Poulia in other parts of Greece. On November 14th is the day of the feast of St. Philip. Since these days after dark Pileia can be seen very low on the horizon as touching or kissing the mountains, people in Praisos area say in a couplet which in greek language is in rhyme : During the day of St. Philip:

and young man is kissing the young girl
