The Mid-Autumn Festival is a harvest festival celebrated by ethnic Chinese and Vietnamese people. The festival is held on the 15th day of the eighth month in the Chinese Han calendar and Vietnamese calendar (within 15 days of the autumnal equinox), on the night of the full moon between early September to early October of the Gregorian calendar.
It’s a public holiday in Mainland China, Taiwan and Korea.
Given the Chinese and Korean influence in Eastwood where we live, it ws the perfect marriage of the week for M and convenience!
