The Mid-Autumn Festival is celebrated on the 15th day of the eighth month of the lunar calendar with a full moon at night. During the festival, Vietnamese people often arrange trays with moon cakes, candies and fruits.
Family members will gather to talk and enjoy the moon together. There are many entertainment activities for children such as lantern parade. Nowadays, the society is more developed with people’s relations being expanded.
However, presenting a Mid-Autumn Festival gift to show our affection remains a cultural value that is still preserved. Apart from being a festival for children, the Mid-Autumn Festival is also an opportunity to connect family members.
As time passes, the way people celebrate the festival has changed but the value of its reunion meaning remains. The old and current Mid-Autumn Festival cultural characteristics are still worth to think about.
The Mid-Autumn Festival is also an opportunity for the community’s charity activities with more attention is paid to the spiritual and material life of disadvantaged children.
The society will develop and people will change but these values are expected to be continuously respected./.
