Liqiu Festival

The festival dates back to the Zhou Dynasty (1046-256 BC). Legend has it that a Zhou emperor went hunting with his senior officials on the day. This practice was adopted by the ruling dynasties that followed.

Although the festival is known today more for its solar term, many people still observe some customs associated with it, such as eating watermelon, muskmelon and corn (or "bite autumn") and braised meat (or "put on fat for autumn").
