The full moon in January
is said to be called the Wolf Moon because the wolves are out in the bright
light this time of year, anxious and hot on the trail for a feast to slake
their hunger in the lean winter month. Its name comes from hungry wolf packs
that would howl outside the villages of Native Americans.
