The full moon in February is the "snow moon."
I think it's kind of cool that way back in history the people of different cultures have given the full moon specific names to mark time and season.
Since the heaviest snow usually falls during the month of February, Native American tribes of the north and east most often called this month’s full moon the Full Snow Moon. It's also been called...
- the Full Hunger Moon or Little Famine Moon, since harsh weather conditions in their areas made hunting very difficult
- the Celts called it the Moon of Ice
- the Chinese named it the Budding Moon in anticipation of spring.
