Background
Mid-autumn Festival is one of the most important traditional festivals to the Chinese nations. It falls on the 15th day of the 8th lunar month, just in the middle of autumn, when the skies are clear, winds crisp and farmers share the happiness of harvest. At night, the moon hangs high in the sky, showering its silvery light on the ground. It is the most significant and idyllic moment for reunited families to appreciate the moon. The full moon will remind you of your family reunions even though you are far away from home, hence it is also called "Festival of Reunion". It originated in the remote past, got popular in the Han and Tang dynasties, and has been observed up to today, carrying with it enchanting legends and immortal poems and proverbs. The moon cake, symbolizing happiness and reunion, is the most typical food during the Mid-autumn Festival.
