Full Moon Revisited

Full Moon

When I first posted my post about the full moon affecting peoples behavior, I never expected it to be the most popular post on the blog. It seems that once a month around the full moon I see a HUGE spike in traffic.

Reading the comments that are posted on the post I see lots of people that have trouble sleeping around the full moon. That is something that happens to me when it’s full. I know it has nothing to do with the extra light that comes in the windows around the time. I have blinds that block out most of the light when it’s full.

Other Things I’ve noticed range from mundane to plain odd. Lots of people are or know someone who is irritable around the full moon. Some comments said that they are more aggressive in bed. (I had to delete them because they contained some graphic sexual content. I gotta keep this blog PG ya know.) One woman also said her period follows the full moon.

My mom even told me that she talked to someone that worked in a mental hospital and asked him if more “loonies” come in on a full moon. He told her it’s like any other night. The next full moon they had more admitted than on a normal week.

There’s something to think about here.
