On December 25, 2015 the lunar show was the first full moon on Christmas in 38 years. We won’t have another full moon on a Christmas Day until 2034.
For anyone under 40, this Christmas's full moon is already pretty exciting (this will be the first time we've had one since 1977), but its greater importance goes far beyond how rare an occurrence it is. As you may know, each month's full moon has a specific significance within Pagan traditions, and the full moon itself, regardless of the date, is a meaningful time of the month. That December's full moon, also known as the Cold Moon or the Long Night Moon, coincides with Christmas Day this year presents us with a singular opportunity for reflection and preparation.
