The Chinese Moon Festival is on the 15th of the 8th lunar month, this year it is on September 22nd. It’s also known as the Mid-autumn Festival. Chinese culture is deeply imbedded in traditional festivals. Just like Christmas and Thanksgiving in the West, the Moon Festival is one of the most important traditional events for the Chinese.

Iconic gift is the moon cake which will be given to family and friends. Running gag is that after a while you will get back your very own boxof moon cakes after it has be given away and be passed on a couple of times 😉
