Once in a blue moon - an expression to describe a rare event.  A blue moon occurs when there are two full moons in a month.  The month's second full moon is then called a blue moon.  Our current month of July, has two full moons, one on the 1st and another on the 31st.  There will be a blue moon shining down on the pig roast this year.   :)
