Mid-autumn festival is a traditional Chinese Festival.The festival is held on the 15th day of the 8th month of the lunar calendar with full moon at night. The festival was a time to enjoy the successful reaping of rice and wheat with food offerings made in honour of the moon.
Today, it is still an occasion for outdoor reunions among friends and relatives to eat moon cakes and watch the moon, a symbol of harmony and unity.
