THANKSGIVING FOR BILLIONS

News

Its Thanksgiving mainland China, Singapore, Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan, aka Happy Moon Festival, or Mid-Autumn Festival, i.e. A great day to eat lots of moon-cake, duck, crabs, fruits and my favorite, those delicious home made dumplings.

These moon-cakes eaten during Mid-Autumn Festival that takes place this long weekend are like Christmas fruitcakes: leaden, sticky, obligatory gifts made from recipes that became outdated generations ago.

Chinese folks bring these at family functions not because they delicious, but because you can’t show up without them.

The Mid-Autumn Festival, the 2nd grandest celebration after the Chinese News year, aka Spring Festival, is observed this year on September 19, 2013, the 15th day of the 8th month of the Chinese Lunar Calendar. The holidays is is also called Moon Festival, Moon Cake Festival, Zhongqiu Festival, and Lantern Festival, the day when the moon is at its fullest and brightest.
