Mooncake Festival Celebration

22nd September, 2010. This date is an auspicious day as majority Chinese will be having family gatherings to celebrate 'Mooncake Festival' or 'Lantern Festival'. This particular day is a very famous and important holiday in the Chinese Calendar. This festival is also very famous amongst the Vietnamese.

Traditionally on this day, Chinese family members and friends will gather via dinner to admire the bright mid-autumn harvest moon, and eat mooncake together. Carrying brightly lit lanterns or decorating with brightly lighted lanterns are a traditional thing to do during this day.

We had a gathering with family members and friends over at my home. There were lot's of food to indulged in. Everyone was having a good time especially our auntie who was having a jolly good time with the lanterns.

We hope to be celebrating this special day again next year and the years to come.
