Full Wolf Moon

Full Wolf Moon is the name of the first full moon of 2012. Full moon names date back to Native Americans of a few hundred years ago. Tribes kept track of the changing seasons by giving distinctive names to each recurring full moon. Amid the cold and deep snows of mid-winter, the wolf packs howled hungrily outside Indian villages - thus the name Full Wolf Moon.
