The Mid-Autumn Festival typically falls on the 15th day of the eighth month in the Chinese lunar calendar, which is in September or early October in the Gregorian calendar. This year, it falls on October 1.

Marking the end of the autumn harvest, the Mid-Autumn Festival is traditionally a time to give thanks to the gods.

It is also the time of year when the moon is at its brightest, which is why lunar legends have always been attached to the celebration.

This is also the reason why mooncakes are the main highlight of the festival, which is a symbol of reunion and happiness.

Today, you’ll find mooncakes in many varieties, from traditional flavours with lotus seed paste and egg yolk, to snowskin versions filled with everything from chocolate to champagne truffle.
