It is said that there was an extremely tall laurel tree on the moon and a man called Wu Gang was ordered to cut down the tree as a punishment for offending the god of heaven. He was not allowed to go home until he could cut down the tree. But the problem was that each time he cut down the tree, it would quickly grow back, making it impossible for him to cut it down. Like Chang'e, he had no choice but to cut the tree on the moon forever.

After the successful uprising, Zhu was so happy that he allowed his men to celebrate the upcoming Mid-Autumn Festival with the common people eating mooncakes.
