The Mid-Autumn Festival began in the early Tang Dynasty (618–907) and is now almost as important as the Chinese New Year, being one of the top traditional Chinese festivals. The Mid-autumn Festival is associated with the moon and “moon appreciation” (shangyue) parties. This is partly because the moon is at its brightest during this time. Many ancient Chinese scholars composed music and poetry to praise the moon’s celestial power and its beauty. In Chinese culture, music is an expression of the perfect harmony between the Earth, human beings, and the heavens above.
