Days of Spunk, Courage, and Perseverance


Dear Readers,

The Hunter's Moon


This year the Hunter's Moon occurring on Sunday night, October 20th and early Monday morning, October 21st will be shining in the east after sunset looking pumpkin orange as it rises.

The full moon after the Harvest Moon has been called the Hunter's Moon in western society for a long time. After the harvest was cut, hunters could ride out under the light of this full moon to hunt the small animals that came out to forage the remains of the harvested crops.
