The Hunger Moon is the full moon that occurs in February and falls at the end of winter when game is scarce and predators are particularly hungry. Names for the moons varied between different indigenous peoples, but they carried similar meanings. The Hunger Moon was also known as the Snow Moon, Little Famine Moon and Bony Moon. In the past the threat of famine after a long winter was real, for people as well as for animals.
