New Moon Greetings to you all! And today is the Chinese New Year, often called the Lunar New Year (the most important of the traditional Chinese holidays). I have been loving the beauty of the snow but also dealing with frozen gutters, leaks and ice dams. So the name for the full moon this month, which is on the 28th, couldn’t be more appropriate!
• Full Snow Moon – February Since the heaviest snow usually falls during this month, native tribes of the north and east most often called February’s full Moon the Full Snow Moon. Some tribes also referred to this Moon as the Full Hunger Moon, since harsh weather conditions in their areas made hunting very difficult.
