4 Best Mooncakes for Mid-Autumn Festival 2022

Mid-Autumn Festival is symbolic for bringing families together. During the festival celebration, families gather to enjoy the Moonlight in the evening, as this is the 15th day of the 8th month in the Chinese Lunisolar Calendar, where the Moon is full.

Mid-autumn Day originated in the Moon Worshipping Festival, which celebrated harvesting during autumn about 3000 years ago. Because the harvest is tied to the cycle of the moon, it was thought that there was an extra special occasion to take place when the moon was full. As a result of history and cross-cultural influences, most Asian harvest festivals, such as Japan’s Tsukimi Festival, involve viewing and appreciating the full moon, since this tradition originated with China’s mid-autumn festival, which is also known in English-speaking Asia as the Mooncake festival.
