The festival is celebrated when the moon is believed to be the biggest and fullest.To the Chinese ,a full moon is a symbol off prosperity,happiness and family reunion.
Mid-Autumn Festival has a history of over 3,000 years ,dating back to moon worship in the Shang Dynasty.It’s such an important festival that many poems were written about it,stories and legends about the festival are widespread, and its origins have been guessed at and explained by generations of Chinese.
In the Tang Dynasty ,it was popular to appreciate the moon.Many poets liked to create poems related to the moon when appreciating it.There is a legend that Emperor Xuanzong of Tang Dynasty visited the Moon Palace in his dream and heard a wonderful song.
In the Northern Song Dynasty,the 15th day of the 8th lunar month was established as the “Mid-Autumn Festival .”From then on ,sacrificing to the moon was very popular and has become a custom ever since.
Many traditional and meaningful celebrations are held in most households in China and China’s neighboring countries.The main traditions and celebrations include eating mooncakes,having dinner with family,gazing at and worshipping the moon and lighting lanterns.
The Mid-Autumn Festival probably began as a harvest festive.The festival was later given a mythological flavour with legends of Chang-E ,the beautiful lady in the moon.
During this festival,families gathere together and share a fantastic meal.We eat different flavors of mooncakes and enjoy the round and bright moon.I love the Mid-Autumn Festival because it brings us so much happiness.
