Angie, if it will cheer you up a bit, there will be a Harvest Moon next year and all the years after. The Harvest Moon is always the nearest full moon to the September equinox. This Harvest Moon wasn't really a big deal, as the Moon was at apogee (the most distant part of the orbit). I think the hype was about its falling on Friday the 13th (in some places at least), which, obviously, only happens every x number of years.
