12 Days of Traditions – Day 10: Fu Fu
One of the most traditional festivals in China, which is the Mid-Autumn festival, which is celebrated August 15th on the lunar calendar. When you look at the sky at that day, the moon is round, which symbolizes harmony and reunion in Chinese culture. On this particular day, people get together with their families to spend time and enjoy the full moon together. The tradition is to eat the mooncakes, which is a Chinese dessert in a round shape. That’s the symbol of Mid-Autumn festival. That’s why we also call it the Mooncake Festival.
