9/27/2015 I was invited to the Southern Tier New York Chinese Culture Club Mid Autumn Festival.
This club is established by Miss Jiawei Mao, and its organization and activity are brand new, very meaningful. I am grateful to be invited and learned something new. The whole moon ceremony went very smooth which is not so easy to get. Jiawei and friends really did a good job. Thanks.
Moon ceremony can be found in ancient Chinese documents that as early as Zhou Dynasty (1046-256 BCE), emperors worship to Sun in the spring time, to Earth in the summer time, to Moon in the autumn and to Heaven in the winter time.
Moon is "Yin" therefore the execution of the moon ceremony has to be done by female.
