Hi Guys! Did you know that today is the full Wolf Moon!
The first Full Moon of the year is named after howling wolves. In some cultures, it was known as Old Moon, Ice Moon, Snow Moon, and the Moon after Yule.
For millennia, people across Europe, as well as Native American tribes, named the months after features they associated with the Northern Hemisphere seasons, and many of these names are very similar or identical. Today, we use many of these ancient month names as Full Moon names.
We have heavy clouds tonight, but we did hear the local wold pack howling the last few nights, so we expect we will hear them tonight as well. Do you think wolves really howl at the moon?
