Egg Moon Tonight

Each full moon has a name derived from Native American tradition. Tonight’s full moon is the “Pink” moon or the “Egg” moon.  Pink refers to the herb moss pink, or wild ground phlox, an early blooming spring wild flower back east. Among coastal tribes, it is called the Full Fish Moon, to mark the time that shad begin to swim upstream to spawn. Tonights full moon is significant because it is the marker for Easter, a Christian celebration that involves a lot of eggs. Easter always falls on the first Sunday after the first full moon after the Vernal Equinox. Sounds pagan to me!
