Mid-Autumn Festival

I want to wish everyone a Happy Mid-Autumn Festival!

It is regarded as the second most important traditional Chinese holiday, and celebrates the annual harvest and coincides with the autumnal equinox. It is also called the Moon festival, dating back to the days of nature worship and is celebrated by the eating of Mooncake, a pastry enjoyed during the festival.

I'd love to tell you more, but this was kind of a last minute post. But everything you want to know about the moon festival and more can be found here or of course Wikipedia

EDIT: Here's a video where Icgator321 sums it up perfectly:
