Love looking at the night sky? Then Chant at the Moon Day is made especially for you. The moon is of our planet’s satellite, so you can always admire it. Especially on summer evenings when you can walk, sing, or even howl!
The holiday was founded by Stemilt Growers (Washington) – a producer of fruits and vegetables. Local legend says cherries picked on a full moon are much sweeter and tastier. This is explained by the fact that the moon, with its gravitational attraction, strengthens the roots of trees.

- Farmers have noticed the influence of the lunar cycle on the growth of plantations;
- Moonlight has always attracted people; songs and poems were composed about it;
- People always see the same side of the satellite;
- Craters on its surface were left by meteorites from about 4 billion years ago;
- Frozen water has been found on the moon, located in craters under the surface;
- 62% of cherries are grown in Washington;
- Cherries contain anthocyanins – antioxidants that help fight cancer;
- Persia (the territory of modern Iran) is considered the birthplace of cherries;
- There are many vitamins in the berry that have a beneficial effect on the skin’s condition.
