Probably the most recognizable symbol associated symbol with the traditional outhouse building is the familiar crescent moon carved into the privy door. Actually, the symbol is an ancient one, and was a sign for womanhood in colonial days and on the frontier. It's male counterpart, Sol, was either a star or a sun burst design also on the door. Since most male outhouses fell into disrepair rather quickly they seldom survived; while the female ones were better maintained, and were eventually used by both sexes. Although you can find outhouses still standing with the crescent moon, the original meaning for gender identification was lost by the later nineteenth century in most areas of the country.
Carved crescent moons and stars on outhouse doors was introduced in early 19th century America. Typically, the moon and the star together represented a unisex outhouse, while the moon alone represented a women's outhouse. A star alone represented a men's outhouse.
The three crescent moons stand for the wiccan or pagan moon goddess

No, A new moon is completely dark. As it starts to 'show again' as a crescent moon, the bulge of the crescent faces the setting sun. The term new moon can also refer to the very first crescent showing after the astronomical (completely dark) new moon phase. A full moon is when the moon is completely round An old moon is a crescent moon where the bulge of the crescent faces the morning sun (the other way round to the new moon).

Well, there wouldn't be moon calendars which we're inspired by Islam. We wouldn't have Ramadan, there would be no folklore about werewolves coming out at full moon, the date of Easter would always be on the same day every year, there wouldn't be songs about crescent moons and full moons and the Turkish flag wouldn't have a crescent moon on it.
The phases that are visible in the day are the crescent moons because they only come up at noon and they are always right by the sun!AnswerThe crescent moons are visible in the day if you look at the sun the crescent moon should be by it somewhere. This is because the new moon turned into the crescent and it is really close to the sun so you might not be able to see it!the first quarter moon to the third quarter moon are visible in the daylight except sometimes for the full moon which rises just at Sunset. The first quarter moon rises at noon and each day rises about an hour late.

Crescent Moons, were are routinely depicted incorrectly, whether in almanacs or on Islamic flags, always have a terminator (line separating light and dark areas) that extends from a point on the horizon to the opposite point. In other words, a crescent never seems to partially encircle a dark area either larger or smaller than the Moon's disk. To show a crescent correctly, establish a diameter on the disk and make sure the terminator touches both
