Happy Mid-Autumn Festival!

8 Sep

September 8th was the day the Chinese celebrate Mid-Autumn Festival, kind of their version of Thanksgiving.  It’s a day where they appreciate the harvests and eat yummy mooncakes (amongst other foods) with their families, all while gazing at the moon.  One of my students recommended that I drink black tea while eating the mooncake because it (enhanced the natural flavor and burns off the sugar).  It did go might well together, if I say so myself 🙂

 

My mooncake tasted a lot like a fig newton, but if you want to celebrate your own Mid-Autumn Festival, there are many many different kinds of mooncakes to try!
