Corn Moon is that mystical time of year when the skies are filled with a giant, glowing orb of…well, corn. Or so it seems! Actually, the name Corn Moon comes from the Native American tradition of naming the full moons based on the harvest season and crops. And September’s full moon marks the time to gather the corn harvest.
So why should we celebrate this cosmic event?
Corn Moon just sounds fun, doesn’t it? Who wouldn’t want to celebrate a moon made of corn?
With the Corn Moon comes the harvest season, and what’s not to love about that? Food in abundance! Fresh produce, crisp autumn air, and all the cider donuts you can eat.
Get in touch with nature! Now is a great time to get outside and appreciate the changing seasons. Take a walk in the moonlight and enjoy the peaceful serenity of a cool autumn night.
Celebrate Corn Moon by harvesting the sweet golden goodness that is corn. It’s the whole reason we have the Corn Moon, after all! Get out there and gather that sweet golden goodness.
Whether you prefer it roasted, on the cob, or creamed, the Corn Moon is the perfect time to enjoy all things corn!
Then head outside and gaze up at the full moon in all its glory. You’ll feel like you’re in a science fiction movie.
Want to celebrate with a bit more exuberance?
Have a corn-themed party: Invite your friends over for a night of corn-based games, food, and drinks.
Create corn art or gather up all your favorite movies with “corn” in the title (think “The Wizard of Oz,” “Field of Dreams,” etc.) and have a marathon.
Corn Moon is a time to celebrate the changing seasons, the harvest, and all things corn-related.
So go forth, howl at the moon, and enjoy this corny cosmic event.
