The Autumn Moon Festival, also known as the Mid-Autumn Festival, is one of the most important days of the year, second only to Chinese New Year (the Spring Festival). It is a harvest holiday when nature’s abundance comes to our table. In Chinese tradition, the moon represents unity and eternity – a full circle shining bright, as a symbol of reunion, when family comes together for a harvest meal.
