Mid Autumn Festival

Today, 21st September 2021 the traditional Mid-Autumn Festival is celebrated all over China. This festival is associated with the popular legend about Chang’e, the goddess of the moon.
The earliest versions of this story can be traced to the Warring States, a significant period between 475 and 221 BC.
The term “Mid-Autumn” which became the festival’s name appears in “Zhou li”, known as the Rites of Zohou, one of the early Confucian classics.

The Mid-Autumn Festival has a big tradition in China –a big family gathering with delicious food, the famous round moon-cakes and red lanterns symbolize good fortune and health for the year to come. We wish everyone a Happy Mid-Autumn Festival!
