Falling on the 15th day of the eighth month on the Chinese lunar calendar, the Mid-Autumn Festival gains its name for being in the middle of the three autumn months.
Second only to Spring Festival, it is a tradition with a long history. Originating from primitive worship of the moon, the term "Mid-Autumn Festival" appeared in the Tang Dynasty (618 A.D.—907 A.D.) and it became an important national holiday in Southern Song Dynasty (1127 A.D.－1279 A.D.).
People continue celebrating traditions of enjoying the glorious full moon, having moon cakes, watching the tides and reuniting with family members today.
The moon remains unchanged since ancient times as well as people’s veneration of traditions.
In accordance, China National Philatelic Corp. will issue a FDC and commemorative postmark.
