Once in a Blue Moon!

I took this photo last moon. It isn't a full moon right now.

But I was just looking at the lunar calendar, and guess what? It's going to be a blue moon in December!
Not the color blue, but the event "blue moon."
Because a blue moon is when there is a full moon twice in one month.
And that doesn't happen very often - the lunar calendar thingy said it happens maybe once every three years or so, and never in February, because the month is too short.
But this year, the blue moon is happening in my birth month... on my birthday!

I wonder what this portends???

When's your birthday? Because which one is the blue moon, the first or the second in that particular month?
I had to look up the portend :) I am sure it will be a good omen!

My birthday is New Years Eve, December 31st. And I think the "blue" moon will be the second one, because the first full moon is a regular full moon, having a second one is the odd thing.

I think it will be a very good omen... maybe great?
