Chinese Mid-Autumn Moon Festival
Today’s Autumn Moon, known in American as the Harvest Moon and autumnal equinox, marks the second most important date in the Chinese calendar. During this time Moon Cake is shared with friends and family. My Moon Cake arrived yesterday, compliments of the Yang Yu and the Wu Family; former HICAP students, who stay in touch.
I shared the Moon Cakes with my co-workers, who enjoyed the beautifully decorated sweet lotus delights.
Wishing all a Happy Moon Festival!
