Moon festival is one of the top 4 biggest holidays in Chinese culture. It is also known by other names such as the Mid-Autumn Festival, or the Lantern Festival (in Vietnman, do not confuse with the Chinese Lantern Festival). Not only in China, this holiday is celebrated throughout Asia, in regions such as – Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Singapore, Vietnam, Ruucuu islands and so on.
The date of the Moon Festival is the 15th day of the 8th month of the Lunar Calendar. This year, it falls on October 4th of the Gregorian calendar. This time frame is in the Autumn season, and often times it is a celebration to thank the Gods for a great Harvest. In essence, this is the Asian version of Thanksgiving Day. In Korea, this holiday is known as Chuseok, in English, it is actually translated to Korean Thanksgiving Day.
The 15th of the Lunar Calendar (any month) is also always a full moon. A huge part of the festival celebration is moon worship.
Like Western Thanksgiving, family members take time off from their busy work schedules to come home and be with one another. But instead of making a huge turkey, the tradition is to eat some Moon Cakes. Check out your local Asian market, they are sure to have them!
