Mid-Autumn is a popular harvest festival. It is also called as Moon or Lantern or Mooncake Festival and we are celebrating it at the moment here in Singapore. The Lantern Day is one of the most important traditional events for the Chinese. The Mid-Autumn Festival is held on the 15th day of the eighth month in the Chinese calendar, which was yesterday. The traditional food of this festival is the mooncake, which a round cookie filled with lotus seeds paste and egg yolk. Family members and friends will gather to admire the bright mid-autumn harvest moon, and eat mooncake’s and pomeloes and sing moon poems together.
Children of all nations love it a lot, especially for the walks in the dark with their colourful lanterns. We have been celebrating all week already and will continue till the weekend. It’s so much fun and beautiful.
