Hi, Amanake. Introduce yourself in the correct subforum, if you please.
My guesses are - full moons cast a lot of light. I even had trouble sleeping last night because it was lighting up my room - the brain often interprets light as 'daytime' and darkness as 'night-time/sleeping time' due to instinct. Night time is generally
hard for potential predators to see us, in day-time we can see where we're running if we are chased by a predator, and it can get pretty darn cold at night. Therefore when you see the full moon out, your brain may instinctively react "ooh, light=day, I should be awake by now".
Of course, it's a theory - and even then one related to human behaviour, but o hai food for thought. If our brains were easy enough to understand we still wouldn't understand them.
Also, thanks to books, films, plays and other media, full moons are that 'magical' time. It's normal for people to want to submerge themselves in that environment.
