Every year on the 15th of the lunar calendar, it is a traditional Mid-Autumn festival. In the middle of this fall, so it is called the Mid-Autumn Festival. This year the Mid-Autumn Festival will be on 1 October, 2020.
According to the Chinese Lunar Calendar, the Mid-Autumn Festival (Moon Festival) is a harvest festival, one of the most important festivals in Asia. The Mid-Autumn Festival and the Dragon Boat Festival, the Spring Festival, and the Kings Festival are known as the four traditional festivals in China.
In the Chinese lunar calendar, divided into four seasons of the year, each season is divided into three parts: Meng, Zhong, and Ji, hence the Mid-Autumn Festival, also known as Zhongqiu.
The moon on October 1 is more round and brighter than the full moon of other months, so it is also known as “moonlight” and “October Festival.” These days, Chinese people around the world will be reunited with their families to enjoy the bright moon.
Wanderer away from home depends on his thoughts about his hometown and his loved ones. People, especially those who live far away from home and miss their families, pray the full moon as a symbol of family reunion and harvest and happiness.
Therefore, the Mid-Autumn Festival is also known as the “Reunion Festival.”
As the moon rises, everyone here at HAYDEN BOUTIQUE wishes you and your loved ones joy and happiness equal to its illumination.
