November's full Beaver moon shot through strings of holiday lights.
The Beaver Moon is one of the traditional names for the full moon that occurs in November. These names for full moons often have roots in Native American, Colonial American, or other traditional North American naming systems tied to the seasons, nature, or cultural events.
The name "Beaver Moon" is thought to have originated from the Algonquin people. November was the time of year when beavers built their winter dams, and the Beaver Moon marked the time to set beaver traps before the swamps froze, ensuring a supply of warm winter furs.
