Green Sign Blue Moon

It is called the blue moon because it's the second full moon of the same month, following the harvest moon of Oct. 1 through Oct. 3. Despite all the creative Halloween full Moon pictures, a full Moon occurring on Halloween is not a common occurrence and only happens every 18 to 19 years.

Halloween—also known as All Hallows’ Eve—always occurs on October 31; it’s only the day of the week that changes from year to year.
