It is the time of the year for lantern and mooncakes again, as we celebrate the Mid Autumn Festival today. It marks the 15th day in the 8th month of the Chinese Lunar Calendar, where the harvest moon is at its fullest.
The Mid Autumn Festival is a harvest festival celebrated by the people of East Asia and Southeast Asia, including the Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Thai, and Vietnamese. All of them have a different name for the festival, such as Tsukimi for Japan and Chuseok for Korean.
During Mid Autumn Festival celebration, people light up lanterns and eat mooncakes. The festival was a time to reap the rewards of a great harvest by giving food offerings made in honor of the moon. Today, Friends and families still gather together for outdoor reunions, to eat mooncakes and watch the moon, which is a symbol of harmony and unity.
Net Onboard would like to wish everyone a happy Mid-Autumn Festival, may everyone be blessed with great prosperity and harvest for years and years to come.
