Moon worship


  On the evening of the Mid-Autumn Festival, nearly one hundred Han Fu enthusiasts in Wuhan gathered to celebrate at Hanyang Intangible Cultural Heritage Park. Participants wearing Han Fu worshipped the bright moon and sent good wishes for the future.

  Han Fu is a traditional Chinese costume. It refers to the attire worn by the Han people from the enthronement of the Yellow Emperor (about 2698 BC) till the late Ming Dynasty (1368 - 1644 AD). It became known as Han Fu ("fu" means "clothes" in Chinese), because the fashion was improved and popularized during the Han Dynasty. It is usually in the form of a long gown, cross collar, wrapping the right lapel over the left, no buttons but a sash and loose wide sleeves.
