Ah, summer, where the days are long and the nights are longer. On this full moon, August 15, join thousands of people around the country to chant (or even, howl) into the heavens as part of Chant at the Moon Day.
This annual event was inspired by the Wenatchee, Washington-based fruit grower, Stemilt’s. According to local legend, harvesting Stemilt’s cherries prior to a full moon makes them sweeter. The moon’s gravitational pull enhances the tree roots where the cherries are grown. Stemilt decided all this sweetness deserved a celebration—so gather your friends together and let loose your best lunar cheer!
