Happy Moon Festival

On the fifteenth day of the eighth month, with a full moon overhead, the Chinese in kolkata celebrate the harvest by retreating to home to enjoy mooncakes, peanuts, pomoloes, and tea with their families. This celebration is known as the Mid-Autumn Festival. This is a time for family reunions. When a great distance or other circumstance separates family members or lovers, the Chinese say that they can still share the same moon on the same night. The moon has been central to Chinese life for centuries. Chinese calendars, many legends, and some of China’s greatest poets are closely associated with the moon. The chinese believe the moon to be it’s brightest on this day.
