Ye gads, what a year it’s been! Are you expecting coal in your stocking this year, what else? To make things really scary, there are two full moons in October – like a double whammy. The first was October 1, and we survived. But the next full moon falls on Halloween night, a sure sign goblins will be out in full force.
The October 1 moon was called the Harvest Moon, a nice benign name for a moon welcoming the month when frost spreads icing on pumpkins. The Halloween moon is called the Hunter’s Moon, which could have an ominous meaning. What will that moon hunt? What’s the weapon? Where can we hide?
Not only that, but the second full moon in a month is called a Blue Moon. Like we need more melancholy. But we’ll make it through and be happy it’s getting chilly enough so those Murder Hornets probably won’t land.
To celebrate the Hunter’s Moon, why not grab a few friends and head to the Big Canoe Marina to watch the sky unfold with an eerie glow. Of course you’ll want to bring bags of Three Musketeers, Snickers, Rolos and maybe a bottle of chocolate wine to scare away any hungries the moon sends your way. Any excuse for a party, right?
