Honey-moon in June

Posted by Patty on June 23, 2001

There is an old song that has the line "Honey moon, keep a'shinin' in June" and the familiar term "honeymoon" comes from the song or is related to the same idea (June weddings, one would suppose). But just exactly what is a "*honey* moon" anyway? Must be the way the moon appears in June in certain parts of the U.S. But where? And just what *is* this visual attribute?? - Patty
