Merominia, a method of predicting the weather, dates back to antiquity and involves the observation and interpretation of weather phenomena. The name Merominia is derived from the words mera (day) and minia (months) and is based on the premise that each of the first twelve days of August corresponds to a full cycle of the moon or one of the months.
The method itself dates back to a time when people made forecasts based on the observation of the sky and nature. These days, despite advances to modern meteorology, there are still numerous advocates of merominia that include farmers and Greeks who live in the country.
