China - Mid Autumn Festival 2003

Chinese traditions value family harmony and reunion, and all kinds of Traditional Festivals are important opportunities for reunion and celebration. Having a family reunion meal on the eve of the Spring Festival, glutinous rice dumplings on the Lantern Festival and moon cakes on the Mid-autumn Festival are expressions of the hope for family reunion. In Chinese eyes, reunion with relatives is a great joy, and only reunion can increase the cohesion of a family and lead to the prosperity of all trades.
This national inclination toward family reunion has been spread overseas and become a bond for all members of the great Chinese family.
