The Mid-Autumn Festival
The Mid-Autumn Festival is also called August Moon Festival and it is one of the most important traditional Chinese holidays. It is held on the 15th day of the 8th lunar month. Based on the solar calendar. it usually falls in September or October. Chinese legends say that the moon is at its brightest and roundest that night.Families get together to eat moon cakes and enjoy the glorious full moon on the Mid-Autumn night.Scholars wrote a huge number of poems about the moon.
Moon cakes are the traditional food for Mid-Autumn Festival. The round cakes, which look like the moon usually have a sweet filling of lotus seed paste or red bean paste. They often have one or more salted duck eggs in the filling to stand for the moon, which of course is the main focus of this festival.
Moon cakes are usually stamped with Chinese characters, indicating the name of the bakery and the type of filling used. Moon cakes pack in a lot of extra calories, so they are not for the diet-conscious. To drink a cup of Chinese tea is the best way to wash down the sticky cakes, especially jasmine or chrysanthemum tea, which helps the digestion.Welcome to China to enjoy the traditional food moon cake.
