"Zoom To The Moon" Sale!

Summer has begun!  Take a look up in the sky tonight.  What will you see?  A full moon!  Don't you love looking at the moon?  Just think, every person on the planet can look at same thing in the sky.  The moon has fascinated humans for centuries.  People have written songs and books about the moon.  We've coined phrases like "Once in a blue moon" which means that something takes place on rare occasions.  (There really is a blue moon.)  Countries have used it as a symbol on their national flags.  Food has been named after the moon.  One of my favorites is Moon Pie.  A famous dance was dubbed the "Moon Walk".  And if your surname is "Moon" you have bragging rights to its meaning which is "Knowledge".  Tonight's first full moon of the summer has inspired me to have a sale at my Teachers Pay Teachers store.  Everything is twenty percent off!  This is a two-day sale.  It runs from June 23rd to June 24th.
