A cultural salon was held in Cairo, Egypt, on Tuesday, inviting Egyptian students to experience traditions associated with the Mid-Autumn Festival, such as eating traditional mooncakes and reading poems.

The festival, which takes place on the 15th day of the eighth month on the lunar calendar every year, dates back to the Tang Dynasty (AD 618-907), and has continued to be celebrated through the years up to modern times, where it remains a significant holiday in Chinese culture.

Customs for the festival include appreciating the moon, sampling mooncakes and drinking osmanthus wine. On Mid-Autumn night, the full moon in the sky symbolizes reunions and harmony among Chinese people.
