The Mid-Autumn festival originated from the ancient Chinese autumn worship, worship customs.The book of rites contains "the son of heaven spring morning sun, autumn moon.The sun is shining and the moon is shining.Here "xi yue" means to worship the moon.The han dynasty has been a prototype, tang dynasty, the popular Mid-Autumn moon customs, and designated as the Mid-Autumn festival.Ouyang zhan (AD 785 ~ about 827 years) in the "yuyue poem preface" cloud: "August in autumn.Beginning and ending of the season;And in the night, and in the clouds of the moon.Ji heaven road, then cold and heat, the number of months, then toad soul circle, hence the Mid-Autumn festival.


On the night of the Mid-Autumn festival, the moon was bright. Ancient people regarded the full moon as a symbol of reunion.Through the ages, people often use "full moon", "lack of moon" to describe "joys and sorrows", living in a foreign country, it is the month to place soulful feelings.Tang poet li bai's "looking up at the moon, looking down on the hometown", du fu's "from tonight white, the moon is the hometown Ming", song dynasty wang anshi's "spring breeze and green river south bank, when the moon as I return" and other poems, are the last song of the ages.

The Mid-Autumn festival and the Lantern Festival and Dragon Boat Festival are also known as China's three traditional festivals.The origin of the Mid-Autumn festival is closely related to such myths and legends as "chang e running on the moon", "wu gang felling GUI" and "jade rabbit beating medicine".Therefore, the Mid-Autumn festival folk customs and the moon.The moon, worship, eat moon cakes, and so on, are derived from this.The ancient emperors had the custom of offering sacrifices to the sun in spring, the custom of offering sacrifices to the moon in autumn, and the custom of offering sacrifices to the moon in the Mid-Autumn festival.The custom of enjoying the moon during the Mid-Autumn festival was very popular in the tang dynasty. Many poets wrote poems about it in their poems.There are a lot of relics in China, such as worshiping the altar of the moon, the pavilion of the moon and the tower of the moon.Beijing's "altar of the moon" is the emperor jiajing years for the royal festival month repair.Whenever the moon rises, set up in the open, the moon cakes, pomegranates, jujube and other fruits for the table on the table, worship the moon, the whole family sitting around the table, eat while talking, and enjoy the bright moon.At present, the activities of fete and worship have been replaced by the grand and colorful activities of the masses enjoying the moon.

Eating mooncakes is another custom of the festival. Mooncakes symbolize reunion.Mooncakes have become more and more sophisticated since the tang dynasty.A poem by su dongpo wrote: "small cakes such as chewing the moon, with crisp and yi", while a qing dynasty Yang guangfu wrote: "mooncake stuffed with peach meat filling, ice cream sweet masonry sugar cream".It seems that at that time the moon cakes were quite similar to what they are now.
