This autumn I hope you will join me in celebrating the Moon Festival, the second biggest occasion in the Chinese calendar after Chinese New Year.
Also known as “Chinese Thanksgiving”, the Moon Festival falls this September, when the moon is at its roundest and brightest. Traditionally Chinese families get together to look at the full moon, share mooncakes and sing moon poems.
A time of reunion, the Moon Festival is the perfect occasion for family and friends to gather and enjoy the customs and legendary tales surrounding this special time of year.
That is why I and many of the Chinese people are so fond of the Moon Festival.
