April Almanac

April’s name comes from the Latin “Aprilis,” which comes from the word ‘aperire,” meaning “to open” possibly because it is the month in which the buds begin to open.

 

April’sBirthstone is the diamond, which is a clear gemstone.

 

April’s Flower is the Sweet Pea, which symbolizes thinking of you.

 

April’s Full Moon is called the Pink Moon.

Northern Native Americans called April's full moon the pink moon after a species of early blooming wildflower.  In other cultures, this moon is called the sprouting grass moon, the egg moon, and the fish moon.
