There Will Be A Christmas Full Moon This Year And That Hasn’t Happened Since 1977

So barring any thick fog or cloud coverage, Santa should have a bright night to make his rounds.

A Christmas full moon hasn’t happened since 1977, and it won’t happen again until 2034.  That means a Christmas full moon happens even less often than “once in a blue moon.”IFrame

Each month’s full moon has its own name, and December’s full moon is typically called “The Cold Moon” or “The Long Night Moon.”   No matter what you call it, it’s also the last full moon of 2015 and the first full moon of the winter season.
