Moon Festival (Mid-Autumn Festival)













Tonight, it is the Moon Festival. It is a popular harvest festival celebrated by Chinese people, Japanese people (Tsukimi festival in Japanese), Koreans (Chuseok festival in Korean), and Vietnamese people (even though they celebrate it differently), dating back over 3,000 years to moon worship in China's Shang Dynasty.

Of course, there are moon cakes to celebrate. I have never developed liking of these cakes. Besides, I don't know what's in it. They stuff a lot of different ingredients that no one can really tell. But, a lot of people love them. Some of these cakes carry an astronomical price tags on it - one bite worth a thousand, therefore, can't afford [or, not worth :)] a bite.

Translations from Chinese are:

1) Tonight, you can enjoy reviewing the moon for more than 12 hrs in the whole country (i.e, China)

2) Moon Festival in Chinese

3) Moon Cakes in Chinese
