Enligt den nordamerikanska bondepraktikan kallas fullmånen i augusti för Störmånen (Efter fisken). Detta för att det var den lättaste fisken att fånga i de stora sjöarna under denna månad. Vi i Jämtland har vår egen stora sjö, Storsjön. Så för att hedra denna augustimåne fick vårt Storsjöodjur omfamna denna måne av de stora sjöarna.


Acording to the North American Farmers Almanac, the fishing tribes are given credit for the naming of August Moon, Full Sturgeon Moon. Since sturgeon, a large fish of the Great Lakes and other major bodies of water, were most readily caught during this month

Here in Östersund we have our own Great Lake, Storsjön (Swedish and translates to Great Lake). We also have a lake monster in Storsjön called The Great Lake Monster (öodjuret)

Here you can see the full moon of August guarded by our Great Lake Monster.

  1. *Read the fine print about loan costs Some moneylenders will tempt you with low financing costs just to discover that the real general month to month financing cost is in the hundreds!Borrowers who are feeling urgent and need to acquire their money rapidly may not set aside the opportunity to ask what rate they will get.
