[…] May’s Flower Moon officially turns full on Saturday, May 18, 2019, at 5:11 p.m. ET. Your best chance of catching it is later that night, when the sun has set and the moon will still be high in the sky. […]

I enjoy The Farmers Almanac, especially the moon phases and names. Knowing the names of the full moons raising out of the Bay of Bengal in India make them more significant and beautiful
Thanking you

I had heard that if you want your hair to grow – cut it on the full moon (amongst many other things!). So I decided to try it just for fun – and it actually is true! So, take it from someone who’s tried it – it does work!

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1919, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
