TĂªt-Trung-Thu

The Mid-Autumn Moon Festival, held on the 15th day of the 8th lunar month, honors the Moon which is at its brightest at this time of the year.

In a Vietnamese folklore, parents were working so hard to prepare for the harvest that they left the children playing by themselves. To make up for lost time, parents would use the Mid-Autumn festival as an opportunity to show their love and appreciation for their children.
