In just a blink, September is upon us which means the Mid-Autumn Festival is coming.
Family gatherings, lanterns, and, of course, mooncakes will all be part of the festivities. It wouldn’t be complete without one or two mooncakes.
In traditional Chinese culture, the round shape of mooncakes signifies family reunion, while the full moon is a symbol of abundance, harmony, and good fortune.
