Frosty Moon

Happy almost December!

It took us almost the entire month of November to get to the full moon, but it is finally here.

This month's moon is known most commonly as the Beaver Moon.  This was the time of year to set beaver traps before the water froze so that a good supply of furs was on hand for the winter.

It is also known as the Frosty Moon since temperatures are falling and frost is common overnight.

Other nicknames include:

The Snow Moon, Autumn Time Moon, All Gathered Moon, Moon of Falling Leaves, Trading Moon, Hunters Moon, White Moon, Sassafras Moon, Moon When Horns are Broken Off, Dark Moon, and the Tree Moon.

Interesting fact...this full moon is actually the smallest of the year!
