Full moon accompanies Christmas

Photo : Patrick Kobersky

Today's full moon will be the first to appear on a Christmas Day in 38 years - and it won't happen again until 2034, so you should take your chance to see this rare sight while you can.

This full moon is the last of the year, and is nicknamed the 'Full Cold Moon', since it occurs at the beginning of winter.

And if you happen to be marking Christmas by going to a nativity play, the large and bright moon will make a good stand-in for the Star of Bethlehem.

Augusto Giacometti "Weihnacht" (1939)

Blessings, so many blessings to you this day!



  1. Wishing you a great Christmas, light and warmth.
    I Always look for the moon , but today I can't find it, too many clouds ...

    1. Now we are in 2016 and I'm waiting eagerly for snow. Thanks for your good wishes and greetings, Mapi, it was a quiet time with me.


Enjoy the reading. So as I enjoy your comments.
