"In a European folk tale, a couple who were found working on Christmas Eve were punished by being separated for all time. They were given a choice: freeze on the moon or burn on the sun. The woman choose the sun; the man the moon, where he can still be seen today."

Isn't that delightful? yegadz! :)

We are all moonstruck and in some way are magically connected to the many faces of the moon especially blue moon making it more fascinating to us mortals.
