This is the first time we're seeing a full moon on Dec. 25 since 1977, a NASA spokesperson told ABC News. And we won't get another one until 2034. The full moon will reach it's peak size at 6:11 a.m., so, if you have excited kids, you'll probably be up before then anyway. Don't forget to check it out.
