My family got together early to celebrate the Mid Autumn Festival 中秋节 (zhong qiu jie) where we had mooncakes galore, even vegetarian ones with vegetarian yolks. It was yummy!! Coupled with tea and good conversations, we ushered the full moon in about a week earlier than everyone is going to do today.
Of course, there was the customary walk with lanterns and traditional ones at that. None of those music blaring battery operated modern lanterns … actually we had a couple of those but when came time to take a walk everyone chose the candle lit ones 🙂 And not forgetting sparkles.
There’s something about sparkles that just adds to the celebrations. From my family to yours, may mooncakes fill your belly and the lights of sparkles fill tonight and all of your nights!!
