    its from neither event. Moon Cake festival is a Chinese holiday celebrating an old folklore. Love between a general and the moon goddess or something like that. Being released from Formosa (Taiwan) shard it makes sense.

    depends on how you look at it. I mean how big is Formosa shard anyways so there couldn't have been that many handed out. Also, if the item is on your shard already then I think 20 mil is a bargin, considering the seller already used a 20 mil transfer token to get it there.
