The moon festival means re-union in China.

People believe the moon that day is the most round one in the whole year. And for the ones can not go back home, when he is looking at the full moon upside, his far-away family is just looking at the same moon, when he is eating the moon cake, his family is doing the samething. That means even though the family can not see each other, theyare always getting together.

Most family will enjoy the festival togther, do not have to do anything so special, talking and eating moon cake is enough. Chinese people belive a peaceful and normal life is a real life.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
