Mid-Autumn Festival 2016 is happening today, Sept 15. It is the 15th day of the 8th month in the lunar calendar. This festival , celebrating the harvest, is one of China’s 3 most important festivals along with ‘Dragon Boat’ festival and ‘Chinese New Years’. Regardless of whether you have a penchant for Chinese culture or not, the festival should be familiar to you, or at least you should have come in contact with the popular food item ‘Mooncakes’ (Not? Have you been living off the grid all these years?).
ChinesePod is celebrating along with the rest of the Mandarin speaking world, and we have some festive content waiting for you! Here is our content selection for Mid-Autumn Festival 2016.
