The Cold Moon

Tonight's Full Moon.
The December moon is called the "Cold Moon" ~ Winter takes a firm hold and temperatures plummet at this time  Sometimes this moon is also called the "Long Night Moon" as the winter nights lengthen and the moon spends more time above the horizon opposite a low sun.  The full moon name often used by Christian settlers is the "Moon Before Yule".
