Mid-Autumn Festival (Traditional Chinese: 中秋節, Simplified Chinese: 中秋节, Vietnamese: tết Trung Thu, Korean: 추석) is a harvest festival celebrated by ethnic Chinese, Koreans and Vietnamese people. The festival is held on the 15th day of the 8th month of the lunar calendar with full moon at night, corresponding to late September to early October of the Gregorian calendar with full moon at night.[1]

Mainland China listed the festival as an “intangible cultural heritage” in 2006 and a public holiday in 2008.[1] It is also a public holiday in Taiwan, and in Hong Kong. Chuseok (Korean: 추석), originally known as hangawi (한가위 from archaic Korean for “the great middle (of autumn)”(한가위), is a major harvest festival and a three-day holiday in Korea.  —— From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

 

We usually celebrate Mid-Autumn Festival by writing poem, singing song, eating Moon cake, and enjoying Moon.
