Teaching The Mid-Autumn Festival

The Mid-Autumn Festival

Legend has it that during the Chinese Mid-Autumn Festival, if you look closely enough, you can see the images of the Jade Rabbit and the Lady in the Moon. This is the time when the full moon rises into the night sky at its roundest and brightest all year. The moon's round shape symbolizes togetherness and unity, and families gather together to share a meal, celebrate the moon's glimmering beauty, and retell stories of long ago.
