Christmas Day 2015 there will be a Christmas Full Moon meaning that we will see a Full Moon on Christmas Day. The last time we saw a Full Moon on Christmas Day was in 1977 (38 years ago). I was almost 16 months old then and I am 39 now. So it seems that a Full Moon on Christmas Day is rare. So take this time to treasure this beautiful gift that God has blessed us with to see on this special day as well. The next Christmas Full Moon will not occur until 2034 (19 years from now). I will be 58 for the next occurrence.
So if you are younger than 38 this will be your first chance to see this rare Christmas Full Moon. Since I was 16 months old at the time of the last occurrence, I don’t remember it. But, this will be something that I would like to see. A special full moon on a special Holy Day. I am planning on going out to see this beautiful creation of God.
According to Weather.com the full moon should reach its peak around 6:15 a.m. This is also a special moon called an Oak Moon or Cold Moon as it rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. The moon should also be in the sky all night long. The last full moon of the year in December also has a nick name Full Long Night’s Moon. This moon also has been called Yuletide Moon (Moon Before Yule) as well.
Let’s remember that our Savior, Jesus, God’s Son, came to be born to die for our sins. That is the ultimate gift that God gave us is His Son to die for us. I pray that you have accepted Jesus as your personal Savior.
I would also like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas as well.
