Mid-Autumn Festival

The Mid-Autumn Festival, also known as the Mooncake Festival, is a major traditional festival in
Chinese culture.
It is also celebrated by many other Asian countries.
It is a time for family reunion; people will gather for dinners, worship the moon, light paper lanterns, and share mooncakes.
MIS celebrated this festival on Friday 9th September.
Our talented students participated through singing, storytelling and dancing. They also learned the stories of Chang’ E go to the moon and the Yi Shot Down the Suns.

The fifteenth day of the eighth lunar month gives us the midpoint of autumn and names the Mid- Autumn festival. The traditional Chinese division of the year into four seasons of spring, summer, autumn, and winter, comes with each season consisting of three parts: “Meng” &”Zhong” and”Ji”
This festival is often referred to as “Zhongqiu”
During the Mid-Autumn Festival, the moon is full and shines brighter than in other months, bringing the two titles of the “Moon Festival” and “August Festival” together.
People look forward to a reunion with their family as they look upon the jade-like moon in the night sky. In the moonlight, at the riverside, people light red candles, pray to the moon god, make a wish, share a moon cake, sing a moon song, and enjoy the moonlight. Sharing the moon cake leaves each child with a sweet memory.
