Happy Mid-Autumn Festival!
For the past few years, we have had an Open House here at Mayway to celebrate this holiday with customers and friends. Sadly, this year we aren’t able to get together in person, but want you to know that we’re thinking of you and how much we appreciate your friendship and support.
For the last 3,000 years, Chinese people have celebrated the Mid-Autumn Festival on the 15th day of the 8th month on the Lunar calendar (Thursday, October 1st this year). This important holiday gathers family and friends to give thanks for a good harvest and to celebrate the harmony between each other and in society. In these challenging times especially, it is also a time to pray for peace and a good future.
We Chinese believe that the Moon is at its brightest and fullest on this day, and moon worship and appreciation has been a central theme of the festival since ancient times. The fullness of the Moon represents fertility and wholeness. Being together under it with friends and family honors the strength of these relationships.
We will be enjoying mooncakes and fellowship here in the office on Thursday, and hope that you will have the opportunity to enjoy the Moon and get together with family and friends as well. Light a candle or more traditionally, a lantern, as a beacon to guide your way to good luck and prosperity. Take a moment to treasure your loved ones and rejoice in your life.
We wish everyone good health, tranquility, and better days to come.
