The moon festival or mid-autumn festival is one of the three major traditional festivals celebrated by chinese people. like harvest time in other countries， the mid-autumn festival actually began as a thanksgiving celebration， honoring the soil god and the crop god. this is also a time for family reunions.
Chinese people enjoy moon cakes during this feast just as they eat rice dumplings for the dragon boat festival. it is quite appropriate to bring moon cakes with you in token of festival greetings when calling on people during this season.
