This Sunday, 30th September 2012, the Chinese will be celebrating their important Mid-Autumn Festival. It is the perfect time for lotto players from around the world to place their lotto entries and test their luck.
There are certain days that are simply too auspicious not to take advantage of. The Chinese Mid-Autumn Festival, one of the most important dates on the Chinese calendar, is just such an example of a day not to be ignored.
The Mid-Autumn Festival is a lunar harvest festival that has origins going back thousands of years. Recently it was acknowledged as an official public holiday by the Chinese government. It is known by many names, including:
• The Moon Festival
• The Moon Cake Festival
• Zhōngqiū Jié Festival
• The Lantern Festival
• Peh Goeh Cheh
The important festival is held every year on the 15th day of the 8th month in the Chinese lunar calendar . This normally coincides very closely with autumnal equinox. As with many ancient celebrations, the timing is often very in synch with the natural cycles and movements of the earth.
For those that believe in special moments when the timing is just right, this may very well be one of them. In other words, it’s the perfect time to test your luck on any of the giant lotto jackpots on offer at PlayHugeLottos.com.

• Matchmaking – are you single? Now is the perfect time to hook-up
• Lighting & carrying lanterns – to represent the light of the Moon shining above
• Burning incense – this is done to show reverence to the Chinese deities associated with the festival
• Dragon Dances – a well-skilled team have the task of bringing the dragon “to life”
