Once in a Blue Moon
You may have noticed the full moon that rose on Aug. 31, 2012. This full moon is what is known in folklore as a “blue moon.” Not because it appears blue in color, although that is another phenomenon that sometimes occurs, but because it was the second full moon to take place in August. It is unusual for this to happen. That’s where the saying “once in a blue moon” comes from. The next blue moon occurs on July 31, 2015, and there will be two blue moons in 2018 when they fall within January and March. Good idea for a custom t-shirt, isn’t it? Hope you all had a great Labor Day weekend, even if you had to work.
