L’8 December it will be possible to admire the Full moon, commonly known in the Northern Hemisphere as the Long Night Moon or Cold Moon. Its name comes from the winter solstice which foresees the already long night of the year. According to pagan tradition it is called the mourning moon in the years when the full moon falls before the winter solstice, but for our pagan ancestors this was considered a period of purification, in which human beings could take care of themselves and give up bad habits. Therefore, December is a good time to plan your New Year’s resolutions and set exciting new goals to achieve. According to some cultures, the full moon in December is also associated with the warmth of the family, while it’s cold outside.
