Asian Mid-Autumn Festival
What is the Asian Mid-Autumn Festival?
Throughout much of Eastern Asia, the successful harvest is commonly celebrated when the moon shines bright in the sky. This holiday, which can go by many names like Tet Trung Thu, Tsukimi and Chuseok, is about bringing families together. Traditions vary, but often family and friends join to celebrate the harvest of rice and wheat, eat special desserts like mooncakes, share traditional stories, hang lanterns and appreciate the moon in the sky.
