Our mountain home
The Native Americans called this month the Wolf Moon because the cold and deep snows of midwinter caused the wolf packs to howl hungrily outside the Indian Villages. Interestingly enough, the Old English name for the month was the Month of the Wolves, "Wulf-monath," because it was the time of the year wolves routinely attacked the villages.
The Romans called the month "Month of Janus."
