The Festival is celebrated on the evening of the fifteenth day of the eighth lunar month. On this day, it is said that the moon appears its brightest, fullest and most beautiful. Families in China gather together at the time of the Mid-Autumn festival to gaze at the moon, honor the Moon Goddess Chang E and celebrate family togetherness. Learn more here.
