As autumn colors paint the skies and the moon takes center stage, China gears up for a double celebration: the Mid-Autumn Festival and National Holiday. At World Win Technology (Shenzhen) Co., Ltd., we believe that understanding the culture of our host country is an essential part of building relationships and fostering mutual understanding. That’s why we’re excited to share this special time with you and delve into the significance of these two remarkable holidays in China.
The Mid-Autumn Festival: A Time for Family and Mooncakes
The Mid-Autumn Festival, also known as the Moon Festival, falls on the 15th day of the 8th month in the lunar calendar. This year, it is celebrated on September 29th. The festival has deep cultural roots and holds a special place in the hearts of the Chinese people.
- Moon Gazing
Central to the Mid-Autumn Festival is the tradition of moon gazing. Families and friends gather under the bright, full moon to admire its beauty and share stories. It’s believed that the moon is at its roundest and brightest during this time, symbolizing unity and togetherness.
- Delicious Mooncakes
No Mid-Autumn Festival is complete without mooncakes. These round pastries come in various flavors, and they are often gifted to loved ones as a symbol of unity and good wishes. Mooncakes can be sweet or savory, and each region in China has its own unique styles and flavors.
- Lanterns and Cultural Performances
Throughout the festival, you’ll find beautifully crafted lanterns adorning streets and parks. Traditional dragon and lion dances, as well as various cultural performances, add to the festive atmosphere.
The National Holiday: Golden Week of Exploration
Following the Mid-Autumn Festival is China’s National Holiday, which spans from October 1st to October 6th. This is for celebrating the 74th anniversary of the founding of New China. This week-long holiday is a time when millions of Chinese people embark on trips to explore the diverse landscapes and cultures within their vast country. It’s also a time when many businesses close, allowing people to enjoy quality time with their families.
- Exploring the Natural Beauty of China
During the National Holiday, you can expect to see tourists flocking to popular destinations such as the Great Wall, the Forbidden City, and Zhangjiajie National Forest Park. China’s breathtaking natural landscapes, from the Karst Mountains to the Yangtze River, are also on many travelers’ itineraries.
- Rich Cultural Experiences
From ancient temples and historical sites to vibrant festivals and local cuisines, travelers have the opportunity to immerse themselves in China’s rich cultural tapestry.
- Celebrating Modern China
For those who prefer city life, China’s bustling metropolises like Beijing, Shanghai, and Shenzhen offer a glimpse into the nation’s dynamic growth and innovation. You’ll find modern skyscrapers, high-tech innovations, and a vibrant nightlife scene.
