  • Since the heaviest snow usually falls during this month, some native tribes often called February’s full moon the Snow Moon.
  • The tribes that used Snow Moon for the January moon called this moon the Hunger Moon, as the food supply was often low and harsh winter conditions made hunting difficult this time of year.
