Join the MyMoon webcast on Wednesday, September 26 at 8 pm EDT for a discussion with Barbara Wong about the upcoming Mid-Autumn Festival on September 30th. This celebration has a history of over 3,000 years, dating back to the moon worship in ancient times. The festival is celebrated extensively across the country and is one of the few reunion holidays for Chinese families. On that day, Chinese families gather, admiring the full moon and eating mooncakes.
