  • The Moon Festival (Mid-Autumn Festival)

    This year, the moon festival arrives on October 6th. It is the "Festival of Reunion".

    Each year on the 15th day of the eighth lunar month it is the Moon Festival (Mid-Autumn Festival). It is thus named, according to the ancient calendar system, because the eighth lunar month is in the middle of the autumn (the season of the autumn consisting of the 7th, 8th and 9th lunar months) and the 15th day of the eighth lunar month (30 days for this month) is just in the middle of this month. Moon at the night of Mid-Autumn is believed the brightest, fullest and most brilliant. Chinese people also regard the full moon as a symbol of family reunion. Therefore, Mid-Autumn Festival is also called "Festival of Reunion".

    Since the ancient people were in an early stage of understanding the nature and they could not interpret the shadowing phenomenon on the moon, so they invented some beautiful stories to place their wishes. All these touching stories simply make the Mid-Autumn Festival exceptionally enchanting and more poetic and picturesque.

    There are corresponding food for many traditional festivals in China, such as the Yuanxiao sweet dumplings for the Yuanxiao Festival (or Lantern Festival), Zongzi (leaf-wrapped dumplings) for Dragon Boat Festival, braised cake for the Chongyang Festival (Double Ninth Festival). The traditional food for Moon Festival (Mid-Autumn Festival) is the moon cake, which dates back to the Tang Dynasty and people at that time initiated the custom of presenting moon cakes as gift to each other, showing their wishes for reunion. The round shape of moon cake represents the Chinese characters Tuan Yuan, which means reunion, telling the wishes of reuniting with family members at the time of Moon Festival (Mid-Autumn Festival).
