DOTHAN, Ala (WDNews) – Did you know that June’s full moon is called the “Strawberry Moon”?

This charming name dates back to the 1930s, when The Old Farmer’s Almanac started popularizing the tradition. It reflects a practice from some Native American tribes who named it after the short but sweet strawberry harvest season.

So next time you gaze at the glowing orb in June, remember it’s not just a celestial event—it’s a nod to the delicious bounty of early summer.
