There are many traditional festivals in China and of the most important ones is the Mid-Autumn festival, which is a day for family reunion in China because we highly value the idea of strong family ties. This festival is on the 15th, August according to the Chinese lunar calendar.On that day, many people will go back home as soon as they finish their work or study. One of the family members will cook fabulous food and they have dinner together. After the dinner, they will take their tables and chairs out and sit under a tree to enjoy the full moon, which most of time is extremely bright on that day. At the same time, they will have some fresh fruits such as grapes, and the most important traditional food-moon cakes. In China, we celebrate this festival because of a legend. We believe that there was a girl named Chang Er. in order to become a fairy, she left her husband and flew to the moon. She got an eternal life but she was very lonely. Her favorite food was moon cakes, so we had moon cakes in honor of her.
