When my oldest was little, he loved the moon. He would search the night sky saying, "Where oh where moon be?" Even now, when he spies a full moon he says, "oh look, there’s my friend the moon!"

How was I to know that it was not just any full moon, but a Full Wolf Moon. How appropriate for my Wolf Cub Scout. From The Farmer’s Almanac Full Moon Names:
Full Wolf Moon – January: Amid the cold and deep snows of midwinter, the wolf packs howled hungrily outside Indian villages. Thus, the name for January’s full moon. Sometimes it was also referred to as the Old Moon or the Moon After Yule.
