Editor's PicksUnder the Strawberry Moon, A Dinner Party for Summer Love

This summer’s first full moon falls on June 21, one day after the summer solstice. Throughout time, indigenous tribes of North America have called the full June moon the strawberry moon because it marks the beginning of strawberry season. In other cultures, where strawberries are less prolific, they call it the hot moon because it marks the beginning of hot girl summer (jk, it marks the beginning of those dang summer heat waves.)
