Chinese Mid-Autumn Festival

Celebrated in China, Japan, Korea and other South East Asian countries the Mid-Autumn Festival celebrates the time of the year when the moon’s orbit brings it closest to the earth, projecting a stunning supermoon view for us all to enjoy. Traditionally during this time, family and friends would come together to celebrate and give thanks to the moon for their successful crop harvest.
Other traditions include a night-time walk to view and appreciate the moon and making and hanging lanterns.
