Next to Chinese New Year, the Mid-Autumn festival is the most important Chinese holiday, commemorating the fall harvest with wishes for prosperity and time spent with family.
The Mid-Autumn Festival is a popular time in China to display lanterns of all types, to symbolically illuminate the path to success during the rest of the year. In addition, sweet mooncakes made of bean and egg yolk are enjoyed during the holiday. This is also a time for many Chinese games to be played, each with a theme of soulful adventure.
