All CWRU students are invited to celebrate the Asian Mid-Autumn Festival on Tuesday, September 21 from 3-5 pm in the KSL Oval!

The Center for International Affairs will be handing out FREE mooncakes and rabbit stress balls and there will be live rabbits on hand for students to pet!

The Asian Mid-Autumn Festival is a celebration of a successful harvest throughout much of Eastern Asia and is enjoyed by bringing together families and friends. It goes by many names including Tet Trung Thu, Tsukimi and Chuseok.

Traditions vary, but often include celebrating the harvest of rice and wheat by eating special desserts like mooncakes, sharing stories, and hanging lanterns. The moon is an important part of the holiday, and it's common for celebrations to take place at night to provide an opportunity to enjoy it. The rabbit is a popular symbol of the festival based on Chinese mythology.

You can learn more about the festival with the Kelvin Smith Library's Asian Mid-Autumn Festival Resource Guide: http://researchguides.case.edu/mid-autumn-festival
