China's Mid-Autumn Festival
Celebration of Family, Friends, and the Coming Harvest.
The Mid-Autumn Festival is one of the most important holidays in China and is recognized and celebrated by ethnic Chinese around the world.
The festival is held on the 15th day of the eighth month of the Chinese lunisolar calendar (the night of the full moon between early September and October)
The most famous food during the Mid-Autumn Festival is the mooncake. Mooncakes are round cakes that are usually about the size of hockey pucks, although their size, flavor and style can differ depending on what part of China you are in.
There are almost too many flavors of mooncakes to try during the short-lived Mid-Autumn Festival. Ranging from salty and savory meat filled mooncakes to sweet nut and fruit filled mooncakes, you are bound to find a flavor that suits your pallet.
