It is almost that time of the year for the Chinese and Vietnamese community, the tasting of mooncakes and the joyful laughters of both children and elders. Although this festival is quite the event, not many people know why people celebrate this joyful day. This festival dates back to the first century, with different people celebrating it for different reasons. For the farmers, it indicates the celebration of a bountiful harvest and for others, it is a day where they pray to the moon deity to help fulfill their romantic wishes. Regardless of the reason, the Mid-autumn festival brings everyone together to celebrate an amazing day.
