LATER NOTE: Native American full moon names
According to Wordlab, we have the Full Wolf Moon tomorrow. More names here:

bq. January 25, 5:32 a.m. EST — The Full Wolf Moon. Amid the zero cold and deep snows of midwinter, the wolf packs howled hungrily outside Indian villages. It was also known as the Old Moon or the Moon After Yule. In some tribes this was the Full Snow Moon; most applied that name to the next moon.

It’s very urbanized here in Fürth, but there is some snow on the cars, and a couple of dogs tied up outside the supermarket have been barking.

  1. Is my source wrong, or are „Juno“ and „Julei“ used for June and July, respectively, to make it harder to confuse the two?

    (Much like „Zwo“ becoming common far away from areas that are a long way from being spiritually Platt.)
