What is Mid-Autumn Festival (中秋节)?

The Mid-Autumn Festival is one of the most popular Chinese holidays. It is all about quality time with family, the harvest, and sweet mooncakes or other round foods to represent the full moon.

Marking the end of the fall harvest, the Mid-Autumn Festival was traditionally a time to give thanks, so it is also known as the Eastern Thanksgiving.

It is a time of year that the moon is at its brightest, which is why lunar legends have always been attached to the celebration. Most notable in Chinese lore is the the story of Chang Er, the wife of the hero, Hou Yi, who shot down nine of the ten suns with his bow and arrow. She drank an elixir of immortality to save it from a greedy student of HouYi - Peng Meng.

Chang Er then ascended to the moon and has been worshiped by the Chinese as a Moon Goddess ever since. Each year, fruits and cakes are displayed as an offering to the Moon Goddess.
