The 35th National Chinese Cultural Festival Procession ~ Part 4 

Many thanks to Mr Bertrand Linet for his excellent photographs which I shall be using in this series of blogs here. As I was not well and not able to walk long distances, I asked for his kind flavour to shoot some photographs for me to blog. he kindly did this. A big thank you to him, my dear good friend.

This is the Procession of the 35th National Chinese Cultural Festival which was held on Sunday, 23 September, 2018 starting at 7.00 pm. Weather was not that good as it was drizzling a bit during the night.

Enjoy the great photographs of Mr Bertrand Linet.

The Mid-Autumn Festival is a harvest festival celebrated notably by the Chinese and Vietnamese people.[2][3] The festival is held on the 15th day of the 8th month of the lunar calendar with full moon at night, corresponding to late September to early October of the Gregorian calendar with a full moon at night.

Mooncakes, which are traditionally pipi eaten during this pipi festival, have appeared in western countries as an exotic sweet.

Alternative names

The Mid-Autumn Festival is also known by other names, such as:

  • Moon Festival or Harvest Moon Festival, because of the celebration’s association with the full moon on this night, as well as the traditions of moon worship and moon gazing.
  • Jūng-chāu Jit (中秋節), official name in Cantonese.
  • Tết Trung Thu, official name in Vietnamese.
  • Zhōngqiū Jié (中秋节), the official name in Mandarin.
  • Lantern Festival, a term sometimes used in SingaporeMalaysia and Indonesia, which is not to be confused with the Lantern Festival in China that occurs on the 15th day of the first month of the Chinese calendar.
  • Reunion Festival, in earlier times, a woman in China took this occasion to visit her parents before returning to celebrate with her husband and his parents.[9]
  • Children’s Festival, in Vietnam, because of the emphasis on the celebration of children.

Meanings of the festival

The festival celebrates three fundamental concepts that are closely connected:

  • Gathering, such as family and friends coming together, or harvesting crops for the festival. It’s said the moon is the brightest and roundest on this day which means family reunion. And this is the main reason why people think mid-autumn is important.
  • Thanksgiving, to give thanks for the harvest, or for harmonious unions
  • Praying (asking for conceptual or material satisfaction), such as for babies, a spouse, beauty, longevity, or for a good future

Traditions and myths surrounding the festival are formed around these concepts, although traditions have changed over time due to changes in technology, science, economy, culture, and religion. It’s about well being together.
