This year’s Mid-Autumn festival falls on September the 24th, the Moon would be at its brightest and can be viewed as a perfectly round sphere at night, are you preparing to celebrate the natural phenomenon this year?
The Moon festival is a significant holiday celebrated in China starting from the early Tang dynasty. The Autumn full Moon is celebrated mainly as a symbol for family reunion, harmony and harvest.
Mooncake, with its round shape taking after the Moon, is regarded as a must-have for the fall festival. The typical mooncake has very thin crust with dense filling, such as lotus seed, red bean or jujube paste, nuts, fruits, even coffee, chocolate, etc.
