According to The Old Farmer's Almanac, Native American tribes named the moon after the hungry wolves that howled during the wintery month, often gathering around villages. The moon has also been called the Old Moon, as well as the Thunder Moon and Hay Moon in the Southern Hemispheres, since it coincides with the summer months there.
Sadly, if the name of February's full moon is any indication, winter isn't going anywhere. That moon, which peaks on February 10, is known as the Snow Moon. Cozy up, take in the night light, and dream of warmer days.
