Country of the month: Taiwan
No, it’s not Monday, it’s Moonday
The Mid-Autumn festival, or Moon festival, takes place in September among ethnic Chinese groups to celebrate the harvest and worship the moon. Historically, the festival was a time to give thanks for a successful rice and wheat harvest by making food offerings to the moon. Today, it is still an occasion for family and friends to unite, eat mooncakes, and observe the moon, the symbol of harmony and unity.
