Egg Moon ~ Pink Moon

The Full Moon in April is known as the Egg Moon, so called because it is now that the days grow longer, that the hens begin to lay more eggs. Other birds are also nest building and getting ready for the 'Stork to Arrive'.

The Full Pink Moon in April gets it's name from the herb moss pink, or wild ground phlox, which is one of the earliest widespread flowers of the spring.

Other names for this month’s celestial body include the Full Sprouting Grass Moon, and among coastal tribes the Full Fish Moon, because this was the time that the shad swam upstream to spawn.
