The Chinese Mid-Autumn Festival (中秋节) was held on Tuesday, September 21. All this year's Chinese classes celebrated the holiday, where students sang songs, watched videos, and read poems. Students also were able to make mooncakes from scratch this year.
Mid-Autumn Festival is celebrated on the fifteenth day of the eighth month in the Lunar Calendar and is considered to be one of the most important holidays in China and many other Asian countries.
