Full Moon Wakefulness

When I was about 25, I started to stay awake nearly all night about once a month.  It took me awhile to notice that it was always during a Full Moon.  I have been that way ever since.

Wow, man, I have an identical experience. At full moon, I sleep less at night, but somehow my body does not seem to miss the extra hours of sleep. I first became aware of this around age 30, when my son was one year old and also appeared to be affected. At night, our windows were fully covered by thick blinds, so we had no direct feeling of the moonlight. Even now, I sleep less at full moon.<br />

Could be an animal thing, like fear of predators. I don't know.
