Blue moon over New Year’s Eve tomorrow night

For the first time since 1990, this Thursday evening, December 31st, the moon on New Year’s Eve will become full for the second time in the month of December. According to folklore, that makes it a blue moon. But don’t expect it to be blue.
It’s sad to say, but I do not recall one single, solitary event from the year 1990. I glanced over the Wikipedia article on the year 1990, and that did not help me. I was 54 years old on New Year’s Eve of 1990 and may have gone to a party. That may have been the year when the fog was scary awful. If that were the case, I sure didn’t notice the full moon.
