The origin of the Mid-Autumn Festival:
The Mid-Autumn Festival originated from the worship of the moon in ancient times and has a long history. The term "Mid-Autumn Festival" was first recorded in "Zhou Li". Because of the ancient Chinese calendar, August 15th in the lunar calendar coincides with the autumn of the year, and it is mid-August, so it is called "Mid-Autumn". In addition, in the four seasons of the year, each season is divided into three parts: "Meng, Zhong and Ji", so the second month of autumn is called "Zhong Qiu". It was not until the early years of the Tang Dynasty that the Mid-Autumn Festival became a fixed holiday. There are still folk legends of "Wu Gang's attacking osmanthus and Chang'e flying to the moon".
In short, according to historical records, ancient emperors often had moon sacrifices, and the date was set on August 15 of the lunar calendar. Because it was halfway through the third autumn, it was named "Mid-Autumn Festival". Hanci.com believes that this is the origin of the Mid-Autumn Festival.
