Old name (also vine moon or harvest moon) for the full moon in the month of September, because this is the month in which most of the grape harvest takes place. In olden times, ritual celebrations were celebrated during this night of full moon, during which dancing and wine from a silver bowl was enjoyed. See also the section on wine growing customs.
