Why the March Full Moon is called the Full Worm Moon

Nature inspires the names of the full moons. The March full moon is referred to as the Full Worm Moon, named for earthworms that start to reappear as the ground thaws. And with the worms, the birds start to come back as we get closer to spring.

Past March Full Moons 2017 to 2020

March has 31 days and in some years the full moon cycle aligns so there are two full moons in the same month. Here is a list of the March full moons that occurred from 2017 to 2020.

The March 2018 Full Moon occurred on the 1st of the month. And a blue moon occurred at the very end of the month on March 31st. 2018 was also interesting because January also had a blue moon. That year, instead of having a Full Snow Moon, February had a black moon or no full moon at all that month.

Depending on where you are located sometimes the blue moons will occur in one timezone but not in another. Or possibly shift months.
