As the weather begins to cool down and autumn starts to settle in, the team here at Zapya would like to share some festive joy with our friends worldwide. First, we hope that our friends from across the world concluded a happy Eid al-Adha. Photos, videos can be seen across the world – and can be shared using Zapya.

However, the festive season has only just begun: in China, people are gearing up for another important event, the Mid-Autumn festival. Known as Zhōngqiū Jié in Chinese, the festival is a time when family and friends come together to celebrate the coming of autumn, give thanks to the harvest, and to pray for harmonious unions in the future.

Today the festivities of the mid-Autumn festival include reuniting with friends and family, and eating the hallmark food associated with the festival: the famous moon cake. The story behind the moon cake comes from Chinese people’s belief that a round shape symbolizes completeness and reunion. As such, sharing and consuming round moon cakes during the week of the festival signifies completeness and unity among family and friends.

When such events happen, the Zapya team is not only excited to share news about different festivals around the world, but also provide an app that contributes to the culture of giving and sharing. We encourage our friends from all over the world to make us of Zapya’s amazing transfer speeds to share these precious moments with friends and family. Whether it’s your favourite music, memorable photos, or videos of friends stuffing themselves with moon cakes, Zapya is the best app to share them.
