November's Beaver Supermoon is a BIG deal: Sunny Cuddles Explains It All

Sunny Cuddles Explains It All: Supermoons

Hi, I'm Sunny Cuddles from Giant Teddy. It's time for a super Supermoon!

Supermoons occur when they are closer to earth than normal, making them look bigger and brighter, or 'super' in size.

And it seems like supermoons are everywhere these days.

We had one in October. We'll have another one in December.

But the November 2016 Supermoon is kind of a big deal. Literally. 

What Makes This One Special?

This Supermoon will be closer to earth than any supermoon has been for almost 70 years. That's like... a whole human lifetime.

And it won't be this close again for another 20 years. So don't miss this one.

When can I see this Super Supermoon in the sky?

Officially, it will be 'super-est' on Monday November 14th.

For teddy bears & your human friends just looking at it in the night sky, it will look equally big on November 13th and 15th.

Why is it called a Beaver Moon?

This one is called a Beaver Moon, because the full moon at this time of year marked when the Algonquin Native American tribes and American colonists set beaver traps before the water froze. Beaver pelts were valuable to trade, and were warm winter furs.

*shudder* I'm glad they weren't setting Teddy Bear traps...

It's kind of complicated to observe a supermoon though. 

Are you ready for instructions?

You have to be outside or by a window. And you have to look up at the moon.

I know. You should probably practice. And do NOT let pie distract you.

Ohhhh... pie. It looks like a supermoon.

Giant Teddy Bear Hug Therapy on National Stress Awareness Day

Did you know that hugs can instantly help your mental and physical well being?

It's true.

Hugs Can:

  • Reduce Stress
  • Reduce your Blood Pressure
  • Boost your Immune System
  • Improve your Mood
  • Raise Self Esteem Levels
  • Increase Relaxation/Lower Anxiety
  • Make you Happy
  • Speed Healing

Why are hugs so medically magical? 

Hugging someone increases serotonin and natural oxytocin levels in your body, and they are both powerful players in making you happy and healthy. 

Hugging someone you love creates powerful medical magic! Bear Hugs for all.

The most powerful hugs come from someone you love or care deeply about, but hugs from anyone who is kind and genuine will boost your mood and your day. 

So make hugs part of every day, and leave stress behind in the dirt. And here are a lot of really big {{{BEAR HUGS}}} just to get you started.
