Happy Moon Festival!

Today is the Mid-Autumn Festival or Moon Festival!

The date of the Mid-Autumn Festival falls on the 15th day of the eighth month in the Chinese calendar. That timing places the festival in September or early October in the Gregorian calendar, close to the autumnal equinox, every year.  The Moon Festival is a holiday for Chinese around the world.

It’s the time for family to get together to eat the mooncakes and watch the moon at the night.  For the Chinese in other countries or regions, they can share their passions with loved ones by  looking at the same moon.

This Moon Festival is little different, since tonight, not like the same nights in previous years, turns to be clear and warm.  A big full moon was smiling at the sky without any trace of clouds, which made photo shooting very easy.  I am glad I got some good photos of the moon.

Happy Moon Festival and enjoy the time with families and friends!
