There are many names for full moons, most of which trace back to Native American peoples and the early colonists. April’s full moon is traditionally known as the Full Pink Moon, named for the flower moss pink or ground phlox, which blooms across eastern North America in April. Other native tribes know it as the Sugarbushing Moon, Egg Moon, Frog Moon and Sprouting Grass Moon. Each names reflects a different seasonal event or tradition.
