Chinese Lantern Festival (Mid-Autumn Festival) Arrives!

Just a quick note to remind our friends around the globe that this Sunday is the mid-autumn harvest festival for Chinese around the globe. To learn more, jump over to last years post on the mid-autumn festival, which will provide you with all the details and history surrounding the Moon Cake Festival also sometimes known as the “Lantern Festival.

 There is also a great overview of the Houyi and Chang stories surrounding the Moon Festival over at Wikipedia. Or head here for a look at the “The biggest mooncake in China.”

Oh, and don’t forget to send friends, family and business associates some Yue Bing (moon cakes), as is the custom here. The chocolate moon cakes below are from HäagenDazs (what, you didn’t know China had  HäagenDazs?!?). The item on the right is a mold used to make the cakes (which we have turned into a decor item by adding a stand).
