Не так давно (13 сентября) в Китае проходил праздник "фестиваль середины осени". В этот день обычно завершается сбор урожая. Значимость этого праздника для китайцев почти как у нового года. У многих в этот день выходной.
По традиции это вечер любования полной луной, сопровождаемый угощением «лунными пряниками» (mooncake)😋. Ритуальная сторона празднества наиболее широко отображена в возжигании благовоний Чанъэ — мифической жительнице Луны.

The legend narrates that in the early days there were 10 bright suns. During that period, it was almost impossible for humans to live on the earth because of the unimaginable heat. One day, the brave warrior Hoi Yi, using only bow and arrows, was able to take down 9 suns, bettering the life fore everyone. Thus, the gods decided to reward him with a magical elixir that would grant him eternal life. However, he decided not to take the god's gift because he wanted to lead a normal life with his wife Chang E.
One sad evening, some thieves entered their house to steal the elixir. Chang E, to prevent the thieves from becoming immortal, took the elixir herself. She then was forced to ascend to the moon with the other immortal gods, leaving her husband behind.
Hoi Yi, missing greatly his wife, started making offerings every evening to the moon and hoped that his wife would receive them and feel less alone.
This is the tail of the Mid-Autumn Festival that brings together so many families across the globe!
Stealing this from @cookieandgizmoli but look at this little guy making moon cakes!
