Christian Mid-Autumn Festival

Speaking of festivals, I think also of some that come later in the year, not just Easter and Pentecost.

The Mid-Autumn Festival (中秋節) really should have its own Collect, Epistle and Gospel in Chinese churches. It corresponds, for the Chinese, to the Feast of Tabernacles ordered in the Law of Moses, and is therefore a most fitting time to give godly thanks for ‘the kindly fruits of the earth’.
