Ancient Chinese emperors worshiped the moon in autumn to thank it for the harvest. Ordinary people took the Mid-Autumn Festival to be a celebration of their hard work and harvests. Nowadays, people mainly celebrate Mid-Autumn Festival as a time for family reunions.                  

The Liverpool Confucius Institute is a collaborative project between the University of Liverpool, Xi'an Jiaotong University and the Office of Chinese Language Council International (Hanban), for the promotion of Chinese language and culture.
