The Full Cold Moon, as December’s full moon is called, will occur at 4:11am MST early Christmas morning.

According to the Old Farmer’s Almanac, “This is the month when the winter cold fastens its grip and the nights become long and dark. This full Moon is also called the Long Nights Moon by some Native American tribes.”
