To those that follow the Seasonal Method of naming the moons (see Full Moon Names: Rewilding your calendar for an explanation of the two different methods) the 2nd moon in December receives the name of Wolf Moon, where as those that follow the Monthly Method would call this moon a Blue Moon.  Note that this moon occurring in December but after the solstice sets up 2010 for the same kind of discord between the two methods that we saw last year where the January moon takes the name of Snow Moon by the Seasonal Method and Wolf Moon by the Monthly Method, etc.
