Happy MoonCake Festival

Hi everyone, how's your day?..
Hope everything is in fine condition throughout this holiday and festive season.
I was told by my chinese colleague that today is the MoonCake Festival.
Okay, therefore i want to take this opportunity to wish all of our chinese friend A Happy MoonCake Festival. I wonder how this MoonCake Festival existed. I've spent a little time to search for it in wikipedia.

The History of MoonCake Festival is linked to to the legends of Chang E, the mythical Moon Goddess of Immortality. According to “Li-Ji”, an ancient Chinese book recording customs and ceremonies, the Chinese Emperor should offer sacrifices to the sun in spring and the moon in autumn. The 15th day of the 8th lunar month is the day called “Mid-Autumn”. The night on the 15th of the 8th lunar month is also called “Night of the Moon”. Under the Song Dynasty (420), the day was officially declared for Mid-Autumn Festival.

Because of its central role in the Mid-Autumn festival, mooncakes remained popular even in recent years. For many, mooncakes form a central part of the Mid-Autumn festival experience such that it is now commonly known as 'Mooncake Festival'.

So, enjoy your MoonCake.. I Love to eat MoonCake too..as it is now contain various flavour suit to your taste.

Till then, take care..:)
