    [dropcap size=big]D[/dropcap]ecember’s Full Moon is called the Cold Moon, referring to temperature, not mood. And this month will be warm, open-hearted, and little bit sappy (December 12th). Hot on the Moon’s heels, the Geminid Meteor Shower peaks the night of the 14th, brightening minds and adding sparkle to conversations. (It will be pretty too, so don’t forget to look up that night.)
