Here’s everything to know about the last moon of the year, and why this event is called the December Cold Moon.
FULL MOON for December
According to the website timeanddate.com, the next full moon event for the year happens later this month – and it’s the last lunar event of its kind until 2024!
The next moon for December will be at its height on 28 December, which gives you almost a month to prepare for the event (and make sure you don’t miss it).
This makes it the last moon for December, and also the last of its kind for the rest of the year.
After this, you’ll have to wait until January for the next event!
About the December Moon
According to the website for Moon Giant, the December lunar event is referred to as the COLD or ICE moon.
This is because of the traditional colder weather associated with this time of the year, which usually happens in the Northern Hemisphere – but can also be very true for the Southern parts of the world!
It’s the last full moon for the year, so make sure that you don’t miss this beautiful lunar event for 2023.
January’s full moon date
Missed the cold moon?
If you’re looking forward to next year (or miss the 2023 last moon), then January’s event happens on the 6th of the month.
Set a reminder for the January moon, which happens early in the month to announce the beginning of 2024.
