Blue Moon -Postcard Friendship Friday #131

Today is special because this evening there will be a rare Blue Moon.  You've heard the saying, "that happens once in a blue moon."  The truth is, a blue moon isn't actually blue.  It is the rare occurrence of two full moons in one month's time.  I've always loved the idea of a blue moon--of course, the real explanation is a lot less romantic than what I imagined when I was young.

This wonderful old postcard expresses my youthful idea of a romantic Blue Moon.

*  DON'T FORGET:  When you submit a postcard, be sure to put a link back to this page.  You can copy and paste the PFF badge, which has the link embedded.  Thank you!

*  NOTE: You don't have to stick to the theme I choose each Friday. Just put up the postcards you love and tell us why you like them.

*  REMINDER: Comments and links which contain advertising and do not refer to any of the following; Postcard Friendship Friday, mailboxes, the Post office, postcards or the love of postcards, will be deleted.

That's a beautiful card, indeed.
Old folks say strange things happen when there is a blue moon but tonight, who would've thought that in my country (the Philippines), it would be an earthquake? I pray that there will be no major damage and the tsunami alert will be lifted.

I just learned about the real meaning behind the 'blue moon'! after 20 + years!

Thanks for the trivia and happy weekend.

Great minds think alike! But I didn't manage to find a moon card - yours is beautiful. :)

I learned about the "blue moon" several years ago - really a fun little piece of information. Can't imagine why it took so long to hear about it!

Have a good holiday weekend, Beth. Carol
