There's just something about a full moon. Equally eerie and magical. Like something unexpected could happen at any moment.
I ran across this interesting post on gardening and the moon cycles. It's old lore and very interesting. Here's an interesting site on the moon and the weather.
For fun, I googled 'moon lore' just to see what would come up and got a very interesting list of sites. They made for a pleasant morning's read.
