Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

the symbol for moon started off as a crescent but was changed to this:

月  - moon

when used with the symbol for the sun, it means light

日  - sun

明  - light

two characters combined are supposed to take up the same amount of space as a single character so unfortunately they tend to get smaller
