The Mid-Autumn Festival is one of the traditional Chinese festivals, which is celebrated every year on the 15th day of the 8th lunar month of the Chinese lunar calendar.
For Chinese people, Mid-Autumn Festival means family reunion and peace. The festival is celebrated when the moon is believed to be the biggest and fullest. To the Chinese, a full moon is a symbol of harvest, happiness, and family reunion.
