This year, the Moon Festival, or Mid-Autumn Festival takes place today, September 25. During the festival, the moon is said to be at its fullest and brightest, and symbolizes the abundance of the summer harvest. It's also a time for family gatherings and eating. It's a big holiday for the Chinese, however it's celebrated in many other Asian countries and cultures, such as Malaysia, Vietnam, Korea and Singapore.
One of the biggest, and most traditional ways, to celebrate the Moon Festival is to eat mooncakes outside under the moon. If you don't live in a place where you can buy them, you can always order mooncakes online. Or, you can get really crafty and try and make one yourself.
