When is Mid-Autumn Festival this year? Mid-Autumn Festival 2016 is on September 15. Chinese people tend to believe the full moon is a symbol of peace, prosperity, and family reunion. On Mid-Autumn night, the harvest moon is supposed to be the brightest and fullest of the year. Thus, the festival is also known as the “Day of Reunion” and the “Moon Festival”.
Many traditional and meaningful celebrations are held in most households among Chinese. We will have a dinner with family, admiring the full moon and eating mooncakes.
Mooncakes are traditional Chinese pastries eaten to celebrate the Mid-Autumn Festival. The festival typically involves much giving, receiving, and eating of mooncakes.
