Vietnamese families plan their activities around their children on this special day. In a Vietnamese folklore, parents were working so hard to prepare for the harvest that they left the children playing by themselves.

To make up for lost time, parents would use the The Mid Autumn Festival as an opportunity to show their love and appreciation for their children.

Appropriately, the The Mid Autumn Festivall is also called the Children’s Festival. Trung-Thu activities are often centered around children and education. Parents buy lanterns for their children so that they can participate in a candlelit lantern procession at down. Lanterns represent brightness while all electric lights go out.

Vietnamese markets sell a variety of lanterns, but the most popular children’s lantern is the star lantern. Other children’s activities include arts and crafts in which children make face masks and lanterns.

Like Chinese, Vietnamese parents tell their children fairy tales and serve moon cakes and other special treats under the silvery moon.
