Mid Autumn Festival

Chinese Mid-Autumn Festival is celebrated on the 15th day of every 8th lunar month. It is the most important festival after the Chinese Lunar New Year. According to the lunar calendar, on the night of the 15th day of August, the moon is believed to be fuller and brighter than in other months.

A full moon is a symbol of togetherness. As such, the Mid-Autumn Festival is a time for family reunion. It's also called "Reunion Festival".
