Snow Moon

February 2016 Snow Moon, also known as “The Hunger Moon”. The names are related due to the season. February has traditionally been known as a month of heavy snow fall, hence the name, Snow Moon and because the heavy snow made it difficult to hunt and trap, it has also been called the Hunger Moon.
Did you know that because the lunar cycle runs 29 days, once every 19 years, the month of February has no full moon?
