Holidays To Remember
National Iced Tea Month
June / United States
Full  Moon Day ..........................................
National Hugging Day / January 21
The full moon is the lunar phase when the Moon appears fully illuminated from Earth's perspective. This occurs when Earth is located between the Sun and the Moon (more exactly, when the ecliptic longitudes of the Sun and Moon differ by 180°). This means that the lunar hemisphere facing Earth – the near side – is completely sunlit and appears as a circular disk, while the far side is dark. The full moon occurs once roughly every month.

This holiday is considered an unofficial holiday but is found listed in "Weird, wild & wacky Holidays"

Origin of this Holiday
Our research did not find the creator, or the origin of this day. We did not find any congressional records or presidential proclamations for this day. Even though we didn't, this is still a holiday that is publicized to celebrate.

Do people really celebrate this holiday?
You bet they do! Since a full moon occurs most every month, it give monthly excuses to host a moon party. Moon parties are held by groups, clubs and individuals who just love the moon.

In Folklore and tradition:
Full moons are traditionally associated with temporal insomnia (inability to sleep), insanity (hence the terms lunacy and lunatic) and various "magical phenomena" such as lycanthropy. Psychologists, however, have found that there is no strong evidence for effects on human behavior around the time of a full moon. They find that studies are generally not consistent, with some showing a positive effect and others showing a negative effect. In one instance, the 23 December 2000 issue of the British Medical Journal published two studies on dog bite admission to hospitals in England and Australia. The study of the Bradford Royal Infirmary found that dog bites were twice as common during a full moon, whereas the study conducted by the public hospitals in Australia found that they were less likely.
