What actually Happens on a Full Moon

Picture

Full Moons are traditionally associated with temporal insomnia, insanity (hence the terms lunacy and lunatic) and various “magical phenomena” such as lycanthropy. Psychologists, however, have found that there is no strong evidence for effects on human behaviour around the time of a full moon. They find that studies are generally not consistent, with some showing a positive effect and others showing a negative effect. In one instance, the 23 December 2000 issue of the British Medical Journal published two studies on dog bite admission to hospitals in England and Australia. The study of the Bradford Royal Infirmary found that dog bites were twice as common during a full moon, whereas the study conducted by the public hospitals in Australia found that they were less likely.

Naming the Moon

It is traditional to assign special names to each full moon of the year, though the rules that determine the name for a given month’s full moon has changed over time (e.g., the blue moon). An ancient method of assigning names is based upon seasons and quarters of the year. For instance, the Egg Moon (the full moon before Easter) would be the first moon after March 21, and the Lenten Moon would be the last moon on or before March 21. Modern practice, however, is to assign the traditional names based on the Gregorian calendar month when the full moon falls. This method frequently results in the same name as the older method would, and is far more convenient to use.

Things that happen on a full moon

It has been said that Tidal waves change during a full moon. This is because , high and low tides are now at their absolute maximum and minimum. It has also been said that the chances of being bitten by a dog are double during a full moon. It is known that that in mental homes or asylums there is more unrest and the same goes for anywhere where emotions run high, such as prisons or hospitals or police stations. Staff will often report more problems at this particular time.
