Chinese Club hosts successful Mid-Autumn Festival celebration!
The Mid-Autumn Festival, also known as Moon Festival or Mooncake Festival, is a traditional festival celebrated in Chinese culture for the end of the autumn harvest. The festival is held on the 15th day of the eighth month of the Chinese lunar calendar, with a full moon at night.
Students, faculty, and community members gathered by the fireplace in the Campbell Student Union to learn about the festival tradition and Chinese culture while enjoying mooncakes, drinking Chinese tea, and making paper lanterns. Students also learned to write Chinese characters like “Happy Mid-Autumn Festival” — 中秋节快乐 — to decorate their paper lanterns.
Thank you to all the organizers and participants for joining us for the celebration of the Mid-Autumn Festival. A special thanks goes to Halla Swindle ’23, Chinese Club president, who organized and prepared the activities. We also greatly appreciate the support of the Modern Languages Department.
