Mid-Autumn Day Festival


The Mid-Autumn Day Festival is a very popular harvest festival, which is celebrated in China and Vietnam. This festival takes place on the fifteenth day of the eight month in the Chinese Calendar during a full moon, which is close to the autumnal equinox in September or in early October.

In China, the Mid-Autumn Day Festival is a public holiday as well as in Taiwan. The Vietnamese consider this festival as the second most important holiday tradition.

In honour of the moon, this festival is a time to celebrate the reaping of wheat and rice accompanied by so many food offerings.

A major part of the Mid-Autumn Day Festival is the carrying of brightly lit lanterns, lighting lanterns on the top of towers and floating sky lanterns. Another major tradition of this festival is the making and sharing of moon cakes. As the moon is a symbol of unity and harmony, people spend most of the time during the Mid-Autumn festival socialising with family and friends, enjoying the culinary delight of moon cakes and watching the moon.

If you are in China or Taiwan during the Mid-Autumn Festival definitely check it out as you are missing a lot.
