Pampered Chef: Once in a Blue Moon

    Tonight is not only New Year's Eve, it is also a full moon tonight, in fact, it's a Blue Moon.


    Never seen the moon turn blue? You're right, you haven't seen it blue but you have seen a Blue Moon whether you know it or not. A Blue Moon is the second full moon in a calendar month.

    A full moon occurs every 29.5 days, which means there are usually 12 full moons per year. About every 2-1/2 years, an extra full moon falls within a calendar month — a Blue Moon. Our last Blue Moon was in May 2007.

    A Blue Moon on New Year's is quite rare, occurring every 19 years. The last time was in 1990; the next one won't come again until 2028.

    So if you're howling at the moon tonight, you have an excuse, especially if you only howl once in a Blue Moon.

    Very interesting. I, in fact learned something. Thanks and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
  3. Cool...very cool....I remember the last blue moon and one of my children asking when would be the next one.......I have to call my mom and remind her that as children she used to say "only in a blue moon" when one of us six kids wanted something that was totally out of the realm of possibility. Thanks, KG

    YW, with all the junque I post, it's good to know that I'm able to come up with something good once in a blue moon.

    Mmm, I love Blue Moon Belgian White ale, with the orange slice of course! I'll have to go tell the kids - they'll definitely want to howl at this blue moon tonight! :) (Oh, and thanks a lot, now I have that song in my head!!) ;)

    It was beautiful last night - cold - but clear and crisp. The Blue Moon was so bright that we could have been driving without headlights.

    We sha'n't see the likes of that again for another 19 years. (Or at least, until tonight when the moon won't be completely full but still awfully bright.)
Have something to add?
