Mid-Autumn Festival, also known as the Moon Festival, is a harvest festival, celebrated in China and other East Asian countries, such as Vietnam and Singapore. It is always in September or October, on month 8 day 15 of the Chinese lunar calendar. While the festival is most similar to Western Thanksgiving, some distinctions in food, traditions and ceremonies set them apart.
