Mid-Autumn Festival is also known as the Moon Festival, because this time of the year the moon is at its roundest and brightest. Ornate, colorful lanterns are hung in storefronts and homes with huge displays gracing public spaces. Lanterns play off the need for light as Mid-Autumn Festival events occur in the evening in order to admire the moon fully. Conveniently, because celebrations run late into the night and also as we all know, lantern or light, symbolises blessings, hopes and wishes in the Chinese culture.
