My favourite festival when I was a kid because we could stay up late, light candles and play with fire 😅 My treat was a dragon lantern because I was born in the year of the dragon which I would keep in my room until the next festival.

We also have Mid Autumn Festival here in Vietnam. Also in Vietnam we use the name 姮娥 (Hằng Nga) instead of 嫦娥

I'm afraid that it's arguable to call mooncake one of the staples for the festival. It's more like a must-eat treat or delicacy or pastry instead of a staple.

Chang e was not a goddess. God or goddess have not been popular in China.

A goddess does not regret stealing a drug and becoming lonely living in eternity far away from humanity.

Isn’t Mid-Autumn festival is the Moon festival when they celebrate the end of harvest season? It’s not like the American Halloween! Don’t you do research before you make a video post, SMP?
