Editor's Note: "As the bright moon shines over the sea; from far away you share this moment with me." Just as poet Zhang Jiuling wrote 1,300 years ago, the glorious full moon evokes strong ethos among Chinese people. It is one of the essential cultural symbols in traditional Chinese culture, connecting the romanticism, homesickness, and transience of human life.

From ancient times to the present day, Mid-Autumn Festival, a traditional holiday on the 15th day of the eighth month of the lunar calendar with a full moon at night, has kept the tradition of a family get-together. People spend time with their loved ones and enjoy sweet mooncakes while gazing upon the moonlit night sky.
