Here is a fun fact for this year: The New Moon will fall on Christmas Eve and the Moon will begin to wax (appear larger) beginning in Christmas day. So on Christmas eve you will not be able to see the moon, at least in the Northern Hemisphere, and you will again be able to see it, at least a sliver of it, on Christmas day. Much like the moon will be reborn on Christmas just as it was the birthday of Jesus. Just thought I would put that out there for those of you who might enjoy the heavenly coincidence. Go here to check on moon phases on an interactive moon phase calendar.
All the best,
