Mid-Autumn Festival is one of the four most important holidays in Taiwan, along with Chinese New Year, Tomb Sweeping Day, and Dragon Boat Festival. Mid-Autumn Festival is held on the fifteenth day of the eighth month on the Chinese calendar, which is usually in late September or early October.
On Mid-Autumn Festival there is a full moon, so families like to go outside at night and look at the beautiful moon while they have barbecues with family and friends. People eat moon cakes, which are small, round, sweet cakes filled with egg yolks, bean paste, and other things. They also eat pomelos, a fruit that looks like a large grapefruit. Sometimes children use the peel of the pomelo to make a hat.
There is an old story that is often told on Mid-Autumn Festival about a man named Hou Yi and his wife Chang E. Many years ago, there were ten suns in the sky. The weather was too hot and everything was dying. Hou Yi was a good archer, so he used his bow and arrow to shoot down nine of the suns. Everyone was very happy, and to thank him, a goddess gave him a medicine that would make him live forever. But Chang E took the medicine, and flew to the moon.
