The story behind this festival dates back to ancient Chinese folklore and revolves around a mythical figure named Chang'e. The story goes that a long time ago, there were ten suns in the sky, causing extreme heat and drought, and threatening the lives of the people. To bring relief, a skilled archer named Hou Yi shot down nine of the suns, leaving only one. Hou Yi then became a hero and was admired by the people.

Hou Yi married a beautiful and kind-hearted woman named Chang'e. One day, Hou Yi was rewarded with a magical elixir of immortality from the Queen Mother of the West for his deed in shooting down the suns. However, he didn't want to become immortal without Chang'e, so he entrusted the elixir to Chang'e for safekeeping.

Curiosity got the better of Chang'e, and she decided to taste a small amount of the elixir. As soon as she did, she became weightless and started floating towards the moon. When Hou Yi found out, he was heartbroken and offered sacrifices to Chang'e on the Moon Festival, which marked the day she ascended to the moon.
