Mid-Autumn Festival

posted on 25th of september, 2007

Today (Asian time) is Mid-Autumn Festival in Chinese culture and most people will have a holiday to spend time with their families. It's a very lovely festival that we will celebrate the full moon with lantern and a special food called Mooncake. (Kids are most excited because that's the only day they're allowed to play with fire ;-)

I'm glad to share our happiness with you. Cheers!

Yes, I like the isolated mooncakes which give high degree of flexibilities for visual graphics.

Hello all! Happy Mid-Autumn festival!

Although Malaysia is a 365 days summer country, we celebrate mid-autumn festival too.

Thanks Charon for choosing my image. ^_^

Hi Teresa, most tradictional mooncakes are made of paste from lotus seeds and embedded with 1-4 yolks of salted duck eggs. Modern mooncakes have plenty of choices like different bean pastes or ice-cream with different flavours, they are more attractive by new generations. Other varieties like the filling with gold leaves or dried seafood could be more expensive but good for a gift.

I find it very interesting how different cultures and societies celebrate the times of the year. Nearly every culture, society, and religion have a celebration on or near the equinoxes and soltices. I love learning how other cultures celebrate life. :)

Those mooncake pictures look very good! What is mooncake made out of? Does the cake, or its ingredients, symbolize something pertaining to the festival?
