What is the Mid-Autumn Moon Festival?
The Mid-Autumn Moon Festival is a significant cultural event celebrated by many Asian communities around the world. It falls on the 15th day of the eighth lunar month when the moon is believed to be the fullest and brightest.
During this festival, families and friends come together to appreciate the moon’s beauty, enjoy mooncakes (a traditional delicacy), and engage in various activities. Lantern processions, moon gazing, storytelling, and performances showcasing traditional music and dance are just some of the highlights of this joyous celebration
