"ONCE IN A BLUE MOON"


I have heard this expression all my life but not until I sat in on a 4th grade science class last year, did I understand its origin. A "blue moon" is a phenomenon that occurs every few years when there are two full moons in one month. It happened just a few days ago... July 31st and won't come again until 2018. 

Love the stories that helped create our language!

HAPPY SUNDAY
