What will the first full moon of 2010 be called?

The Farmers’ Almanac’s name that moon contest for January is on. Starting on December 15th, we will list the top four names web visitors have submitted for you to pick your favorite. The winning name will be announced in early January.

Traditionally, January’s full moon has been known as the full wolf moon. While we appreciate the traditions and the idea of a full wolf moon, we also wonder how many wolves you see or hear in January. This is the reason for our contest – to come up with new yet just as charming full moon names.

Check out our top 4 names and cast your vote for your favorite name.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1910, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
