The perfect convergence of events.

Literally, your “Once in a Blue Moon” Opportunities are here, happening now, during this 2009 holiday season in the alluring and exciting Poconos! Every two to three years (more precisely, about every 2.7154 years), there are more than twelve moons, each occurring monthly, in a one-year time period.

That thirteenth moon is called a Blue Moon. December 2, 2009 saw a full moon shining over the Poconos, the Honeymoon Capital of the World.

A second moon in December will be shining over the Poconos on December 31st, 2009 – New Year’s Eve – a Blue Moon!

Having a Blue Moon herald in the New Year and 2010 is so appropriately significant of the “perfect convergence” of events making this an “ideal time to purchase or build a home” in the Poconos.
