The mid autumn festival or
Moon Festival falls on the 15 day of August every year in the Chinese
calendar. This year the Mid-Autumn Festival falls on 22nd September
2010. It is a popular tradition in China and is a festival full of
fantasies. We called it Moon Festival, because all the activities are
related to the moon.
Traditionally, on this day, Chinese family
and friends will gather to admire the bright mid-autumn harvest moon,
eat moon cakes and drink tea together.
There are many legends
relating to this holidays like the popular tale of Chang er’s Flight to
the Moon, HouYi Shoots the Sun and another classic is the story of Jade
Rabbits Pounding Medicine.
