The mid autumn festival is a symbol and celebration for different activities based on the 3 stories of the past. Some believe that long back there once was hunger in a Chinese dynasty.The hunger was caused by great heat which was coming from about 9 suns. The King then asked a warrior to shoot down the other suns and just leave one sun. The warrior Hou Yi went and shot al the other suns and only left one. The King was very happy and awarded him with a pill that would give Hou yi immortality.  Hou Yi did not take the pill because he did not want to be separated with the love of his life , his wife .

One day when Hou Yi was away someone tried to steal the immortality pill and his wife inorder to protect it swallowed the pill. The wife Chang’e  then gained immortality and flew to the moon. Hou Yi to show love for his wife would offer offerings and gifts to the moon and with time this became a culture for most Chinese people. It is believed that it is during the Mid-Autumn Festival that Hou Yi and Chang’e are reunited which is why during this festival people reunite with their families.
