Across the centuries, many a person has uttered
the phrase "There must be a full
Moon out there"
It's coming March 16th
In an attempt to explain weird happenings at night. Indeed,
the Roman goddess of the moon bore a name that remains familiar
to us today: Luna Even today many people think the mystical
powers of the full moon induce erratic behaviors,
psychiatric hospital admissions, suicides, homicides,
emergency room calls, traffic accidents, fights at professional hockey games,
dog bites and all manner of strange events.
One survey revealed that 45 percent of college students
believe moonstruck humans are prone to unusual behaviors,
and other surveys suggest that Mental health professionals may
be still more likely than laypeople to hold this conviction. In 2007
several police departments in the U.K. even added more officers on
full-moon nights in an effort to cope with presumed higher crime rates.
