January Full Wolf Moon 2009

The Full Moon in January is called the Wolf Moon.  It is named after the cold and hungry wolf packs that in the bleak Native American midwinter in the ice and deep snows would regularly howl hungrily outside the Indian villages.
It is also sometimes referred to as the “Old Moon”, or the “Moon After Yule.”
