Enjoy the 3-day break during the Mooncake Festival, this year, the Mid-Autumn Festival will fall on September 21st (Tuesday).
The Mid-Autumn Festival (中秋節), also known as Moon Festival or Mooncake Festival, is a traditional festival celebrated by many East and Southeast Asian people. It is the second-most important holiday after Chinese New Year with a history dating back over 3,000 years.
Lanterns of all sizes and shapes are carried and displayed – symbolic beacons that light people's path to prosperity and good fortune. Mooncakes, a rich pastry typically filled with sweet-bean, yolk, meat, or lotus-seed paste, are traditionally eaten during this festival.
My favorite lantern is the fish and my favorite mooncake is with Sesame-Seed paste.
