The Mid-Autumn Festival
Did you know, the Mid-Autumn Festival (Chinese: 中秋節 / 中秋节) is the second most important traditional festival in Chinese culture after Lunar New Year?
Also called the Moon or Mooncake Festival, it is a time to celebrate the moon, giving thanks to harvest and encouraging the harvest-giving light to return in the next year.
In more modern times, most people celebrate the Mid-Autumn Festival as a time for family reunions, coming together to pray for good health and happiness.
While the holiday itself has a history of over 3,000 years, it is comparable to Thanksgiving in the U.S. In China and other Asian countries, it is celebrated on the 15th day of the 8th lunar month of every year.
This year, it will be celebrated on September 29th, when they believe the moon is at its brightest and fullest, coinciding with prime harvesting time in the middle of the Autumn season.
