As is tradition, the New York Chinese Scholars Garden tells the story of Chang’e whose face supposedly appears on the 15th day of the eighth month on the lunar calendar in conjunction with the seasonal harvest fest in East Asia, a celebration dating back to at least 2000 B.C. The enduring celebration of Asian culture aligns with harvest festivals such as China’s Zhongqiu Jie, Japan’s Fukushima Autumn, Thailand’s Loy Krathong Festival and Vietnam’s Tet Trung Thu, when the moon is at its fullest and brightest.
