端午节 The Mid-Autumn Festival

The Mid-Autumn Festival 中秋节 also known as Moon Festival or Mooncake Festival, is a traditional Chinese festival orginally celebrated by Chinese and gradually celebrated by the east, and and Southeast Asian people. It is the second-most important holiday after Chinese New Year with a history dating back 3,000 years, when China's emperors worshipped the moon for bountiful harvests.

The festival is held on the 15th day of the 8th month of the Chinese lunisolar calendar with a full moon at night, corresponding to mid-September to early October of the Gregorian calendar. On this day, the Chinese believe that the moon is at its brightest and fullest size, coinciding with harvest time in the middle of Autumn.
