What’s the Mid-autumn Festival? Is there any special food Chinese will eat ?
The Mid-Autumn festival, also known as the Moon Festival, is one of the most celebrated and romantic traditional festivals in China ,is celebrated all over the country. Like many festivals, it's doubled-up with food -- roasted turkey with Christmas Eve, chocolate with Valentines’ Day, and what’s the MUST EAT on Moon Festival? --Moon cake.
In traditional Chinese literature, the moon is often associated with long distance, missing someone, reunion and home. Chinese tradition firmly believes that there is only one moon visible in the universe, so THE moon becomes the connection between families and friends who are scattered all over the world. During traditional festivals, which remind people of a shared history and cultural identity, Chinese tend to feel more homesick than ever. Just as the famous poet LI Bai (李白) wrote: Looking up you see the bright moon, looking down you miss your hometown (举头望明月，低头思故乡).
