〜Strawberry moon  6月の満月〜

Tonight, there will be the full moon of this month, which is called “strawberry moon” according to the Native Americans’ tradition.

For a period of time, it was wrongly believed in Japan that the reason for this name is the moon around this time often looks reddish.  However, its origin is strawberries are harvested in this season.  I wonder when people began to think December is the strawberries’ season.

Another interesting thing is April’s “pink moon” doesn’t indicate a color, but it is a collective word for pink flowers such as moss phloxes and dianthuses.
