It is the time when “people and the moon reunite to form a full circle.”
As the Mid-Autumn Festival approaches, families continue to gather, celebrate the harmonious reunion and harvest, and pray for what each heart desires.
A common way to honor this occasion is by eating the well-known sweet pastry, mooncake. Most of which are filled with lotus paste and salted egg yolk or red bean, date paste, as well as a variety of fruits, nuts, and seeds.
