Educator Guide Activity: Holidays

The Mid-Autumn Festival originated as a harvest celebration but has been transformed into a holiday largely for children.

  • Ask students to recall the features of this holiday (masks, toys, lanterns) from their visit to the exhibition.
  • Research the origins and current practices of some holidays in the United States. What features do they share with Vietnam’s Mid-Autumn Festival?
