The Mid-Autumn Festival falls on the 15th day of the 8th lunar month, usually in early September to 

early October of the Gregorian calendar with full moon at night. It is a time for family members and 

loved ones to congregate and enjoy the full moon - an auspicious symbol of abundance,harmony 

and luck. Adults will usually indulge in fragrant mooncakes of many varieties with a good cup of 

piping hot Chinese tea, while the little ones run around with their brightly-lit lanterns.

 

The festival has a long history. In ancient China, emperors followed the rite of offering sacrifices 

to the sun in spring and to the moon in autumn. Historical books of the Zhou Dynasty had had the 

word "Mid-Autumn". Later aristocrats and literary figures helped expand the ceremony to common 

people. They enjoyed the full, bright moon on that day, worshipped it and expressed their 

thoughts and feelings under it. By the Tang Dynasty (618-907), the Mid-Autumn Festival had 

been fixed, which became even grander in the Song Dynasty (960-1279). In the Ming (1368-1644) 

and Qing (1644-1911) dynasties, it grew to be a major festival of China.

The Mid-Autumn Festival probably began as a harvest festival. The festival was later given a mythological 

flavour with legends of Chang-E, the beautiful lady in the moon.

According to Chinese mythology, the earth once had 10 suns circling over it. One day, all 10 suns 

appeared together, scorching the earth with their heat. The earth was saved when a strong archer, 

Hou Yi, succeeded in shooting down 9 of the suns. Yi stole the elixir of life to save the people from 

his tyrannical rule, but his wife, Chang-E drank it. Thus started the legend of the lady in the moon 

to whom young Chinese girls would pray at the Mid-Autumn Festival.

In the 14th century, the eating of mooncakes at Mid-Autumn Festival was given a new significance. 

The story goes that when Zhu Yuan Zhang was plotting to overthrow the Yuan Dynasty started by the 

Mongolians, the rebels hid their messages in the Mid-Autumn mooncakes. Zhong Qiu Jie is hence 

also a commemoration of the overthrow of the Mongolians by the Han people.

During the Yuan Dynasty (A.D.1206-1368) China was ruled by the Mongolian people. Leaders from the 

preceding Sung Dynasty (A.D.960-1279) were unhappy at submitting to foreign rule, and set how to 

coordinate the rebellion without it being discovered. The leaders of the rebellion, knowing that the 

Moon Festival was drawing near, ordered the making of special cakes. Packed into each mooncake 

was a message with the outline of the attack. On the night of the Moon Festival, the rebels successfully 

attacked and overthrew the government. What followed was the establishment of the Ming Dynasty 

(A.D. 1368-1644). Today, moon cakes are eaten to commemorate this event.
