March 27th, 2013 ~ Full Moon

March 27th, 2013 by Sherri

March 27th is the Full Crow or Worm Moon. Our full moon here in the Plymouth, NH area occurred at 5:30 am. The Full Worm Moon was given its name by the Algonquin tribes from New England to Lake Superior. According to the Farmer’s Almanac:

Full Worm Moon – March : As the temperature begins to warm and the ground begins to thaw, earthworm casts appear, heralding the return of the robins. The more northern tribes knew this Moon as the Full Crow Moon, when the cawing of crows signaled the end of winter; or the Full Crust Moon, because the snow cover becomes crusted from thawing by day and freezing at night. The Full Sap Moon, marking the time of tapping maple trees, is another variation. To the settlers, it was also known as the Lenten Moon, and was considered to be the last full Moon of winter.”
