5. Mid-autumn Festival

Otherwise known as the Moon Cake Festival because moon cakes are given as gifts to family members and relatives. I believe that this is the second most celebrated festival (next to the Spring Festival) as everyone bugs out of the cities and goes home to their respective provinces days before the event. Central to the celebration of this festival is the story of Chang-E, who was married to a warrior named Hou Yi and how “she saved the day” by drinking the elixir of life.
