Mid-Autumn Festival

Xinhua, english.news.cn

The Mid-Autumn Festival, which falls on Sunday this year, is a traditional Chinese holiday that originates from worship of the moon.

As its name suggests, the day falls in the middle of the fall season and symbolizes harvest and family reunions.

The festival, celebrated in the 15th day of the eighth month in the Chinese calendar, has no fixed date in the Western calendar, but the day always coincides with a full moon. It is also known as the Moon Festival.
