Mid-Autumn Festival 2023

The Mid-Autumn Festival, also known as the Moon Festival or Zhongqiu Festival, is a traditional Chinese holiday that falls on the 15th day of the eighth lunar month, which usually occurs in September or October.

It is a time for family reunions, giving thanks for the harvest, and celebrating the full moon. The festival is also associated with legends and myths, such as the story of Chang'e, the moon goddess who lives on the moon with her companion, the Jade Rabbit.

The custom of mooncake gifting dates back to the days when hardworking farmers would finally be able to rest from their labours once the harvest had been gathered. To show their gratitude for the collective work of the farming community, landowners would distribute gifts of mooncakes and take the opportunity to visit fellow farmsteads to celebrate a successful harvest.

EQ continues this tradition of gratitude gifting with its range of delicious traditional mooncake and snow skin variants, available in a variety of packaging to suit all gifting needs.
