Mid-Autumn Festival or Mooncake Festival
It is the second most important festival for the Chinese. It’s a special day because according to the Chinese. 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. It is basically a celebration of the harvest during the autumn of the full moon.
Thankful for Moon Goddess
An important part of the festival celebration is moon worship. The ancient Chinese believed in rejuvenation being associated with the moon and water, and connected this concept to the menstruation of women, calling it “monthly water”. In this time, they do believe in saying thank you and praying to Moon Goddess, for luck and safety.
