The Chinese Mid-Autumn Festival is the second biggest festival in Chinese culture. It falls on the 15th day of the 8th month on the lunar calendar, while in late September or early October on the solar calendar. This is the day when the moon is the fullest and brightest of the year. Also, this is a holiday for family and friends to get together and celebrate after the harvest time in the fall. It is very much likeThanksgiving holiday in America.
Chinese people eat a special meal that includes round cakes called mooncakes and at night they go outside to look at lantern exhibitions and make a wish to the Moon God and Moon Fairy.
