The Mid-Autumn Moon Festival is a Harvest and Thanksgiving Festival celebrated in China, Vietnam, Taiwan and other Asian countries.  It takes place during the full moon in September or October.
During this festival, people gather with their families and friends, offer thanks for the harvest or other good fortune and send their wishes and prayers to the moon.  Other traditions include an outdoor nighttime picnic, with special treats called Mooncakes, and other traditional foods.  At the gathering, people display colorful lanterns to light up the night.

At the Fayston School, we will celebrate the Mid-Autumn Moon Festival on Monday, October 6.  Students will read Thanking the Moon, by Maya Lin, to learn about the Mid-Autumn Moon Festival and prepare for this event.
