With the turning of the leaves comes a time that brings together family, food and fun, Zhōngqiū Jié in China and Chuseok in Korea. Both are a celebration of Autumn as well as a time of giving thanks, gathering together and praying. Reunions of friends and family around traditional food and drink, rituals and ceremonies, performances and games.
During Chuseok, the main focus is honoring one’s ancestors. At this time, people go to their ancestral hometowns, visit & clean the tomb areas of their ancestors then make offerings using the ceremonial table setting for their ancestors which is called Jesasang. For Zhōngqiū Jié, the main focus is the moon. This is why it is also known as the Harvest Moon Festival. In honor of the moon, food offerings are made and loved ones enjoy mooncakes, a symbol of reunion and wholeness.
We, Admins Aqua + Pisces, would like to wish the guys and everyone celebrating at this time a Happy Mid Autumn Festival!!
