A long and cold night for a full moon

 Winter is here and that means cold temperatures, snow and many hours of darkness.

Tonight marks the full moon of December and it is nicknamed The Full Cold Moon or the Long Nights Moon since temperatures are low and the dark nights feel very long.

Here are some of the other nicknames for the moon:

The Full Oak Moon, The Moon Before Yule (well, not quite this year!), Snow Moon, Christmas Moon, Bitter Moon (I like that one!), Peach Moon, Twelfth Moon (how original!), Moon of the Popping Trees, Her Winter Houses Moon and the Big Freezing Moon.

Hopefully everyone is staying warm!
