The Mid-Autumn Festival has its origins in ancient China, back when nobles and the emperors offered ritual sacrifices to the moon in autumn. It became an official festival only in the Tang dynasty.
In Chinese literature, the waxing and waning of the moon is often used as a metaphor for the gatherings and separations in the world. Travellers in the past often expressed how much they missed their family and friends through imageries of the moon. Such sentiments became occurring themes in Mid-Autumn poems.
