What’s the Chinese Mid-Autumn Festival?

The Mid-Autumn Festival is a harvest festival celebrated notably by the Chinese peoples. As Mid-Autumn Festival is also called the Moon Festival, its legends are usually related to the moon. The festival is held on Aug 15th(in the lunar calendar ) with full moon at night, corresponding to late September to early October of the Gregorian calendar with a full moon at night.

Due to ancient China’s cultural influence, the Mid-Autumn Festival has spread to other parts of East, Southeast, and South Asia. However, the way in which different countries celebrate it varies. Mooncakes, which are traditionally eaten during this festival, have also appeared in western countries as an exotic sweet.

The festival celebrates three fundamental concepts that are closely connected:

Gathering, such as family and friends coming together, or harvesting crops for the festival. It’s said the moon is the brightest and roundest on this day which means family reunion. And this is the main reason why people think mid-autumn is important;

Thanksgiving, to give thanks for the harvest.

Praying (asking for conceptual or material satisfaction), such as for babies, a spouse, beauty, longevity, or for a good future.
