1 The Moon Festival

2 The Moon Festival, also known as the Mid-Autumn Festival, takes place on the 15th day of the 8th lunar month. The most popular legend about this holiday tells the story of Chang E, the wife of the brutal emperor Houyi. After Chang stole and took her husband’s magical elixir, she flew to the moon.
