Christmas Full Cold Moon and Giving Hotel Managers a Break

We get a special treat this Christmas Day, a “Full Cold Moon”. I’ve added a meme to the bottom of this to remind you of the details. We all know what a full moon is. Why is this one called a “cold moon”? It’s because it is in December, with the longest nights of the year. The actual longest night of the year is the Winter Solstice, which will occur on December 21st. It’s daylight is over 6 hours less than on the Summer Solstice.

This will be the first Full Cold Moon this century to appear on Christmas Day. The last one was in 1977….38 years ago. The next one won’t be until 2034. It’s definitely something to look forward to. Slightly oddly, it will be at its peak at 6:11 am ET. You should get a pretty good view on Christmas Eve also. Take a moment to look at it. You don’t have to be in a “cold” climate to see it. This December has been amazingly warm on the east coast of the USA and other parts too.

Hopefully the sky will be clear enough to get a good view. Here where we are, clouds almost totally obscured the first Blood Moon in 3 decades back in September. Not far from us, others had a great view.

If you happen to be at a hotel for this event, don’t expect the managers to be able to guarantee you a good view. haha Yes, it sounds funny, but it never ceases to amaze me the things that people expect hotel managers to be able to do for them. I’ve posted a little comic to remind all of the tough jobs they have. It made me laugh and I’m sure many in other types of jobs feel the same way about bosses, co-workers, customers, and the reality of their jobs.

One of my favorite complaints about a resort was that the sea water was too salty. What did that guest think a manager could do to change that? Personally, I don’t like people who constantly want to “talk to a manager”. Sometimes it is needed, but most of the time you just need to talk to the proper hotel employee. It does no good to complain to your waiter or waitress about how many towels are in your room or to complain to housekeeping that there was something not right about your meal. Be polite, speak to the correct person, and give the managers a break.

Happy Holidays to all, whichever holiday you celebrate this time of year. Travel safely, whether near or far, and be patient. full moon xmas 2015hotel managers
