    I think it coincides with O-Tsuki-Mi in Japan.

    But it might be a bit off as the Chinese and japanese O-Bon are also held a slightly different times.

    I was in phillie some years ago.

    they had dragon/lion dance and free moon cakes.

    they also had tai chi and southern fist performances.

    some chinese folk songs and folk dance from kids of chinese school.

    it is a tradition holiday in china and taiwan.

    no matter how far you are, you are supposed to travel back and be with your family.

    if not, you are alone, some family may host you as a guest and celebrate together.

    it is almost a small chinese new year.

    Mid-autumn's pretty close to the equinox this year... fortuitous.

    So, is it a man's face, a woman, or a rabbit that you see? (that's me looking up at the moon)

    It is amazing that people may record the day that the moon will be closest to us or biggest and full each year over 3000 years ago.

    There are many versions of legend that the archer Hou Yi shot down 9 of 10 suns from the sky.

    He saved people with his power.

    but he also was a violent ruler.

    He may not live forever b/c people will suffer under his rule.

    so the wife Chang Er took the exilir of eternal life and flew to the moon with the jade rabbit.

    A power may be used to save life. A power may also be used to destroy life.

    Many countries have plans to go back to the moon and build permanent stations on the moon.
