On Mid Autumn’s Festival, the Chinese believe that the moon is at its brightest and fullest size, coinciding with harvest time in the middle of Autumn. This important festival is celebrated by family gathering with:

  1. Decorating and displaying lanterns (as beacons to light our way to prosperity and good luck)

  2. Making and eating mooncakes, a rich pastry filled with sweet-bean, lotus-seed, and many other tasty fillings

  3. Watching the full moon, while listening to Chinese and folks tales (about 后羿 Hòu Yì and 嫦娥Cháng’é).
