Did you eat moon cakes on Mid-Autumn Festival?
Do you know why we eat moon cakes on Mid-Autumn Festival? This is due to our custom of Mid-Autumn Festival.
August 15th of every year in the lunar calendar is the day of the full moon. The Full moon on the mid-autumn day reminds people of their families and triggers their longing for a family reunion. It is for sure a time for people to come home to see their parents and relatives.
Originally the moon cake was used only for sacrificial offerings during the moon ceremony. Later it gradually became a symbolic food of the moon festival. It resembles the full moon on the night of the mid-autumn day, representing reunion.
Last week, we also made sweet mooncakes by ourselves. Let's have a look !
