Falling on the 15th day of the eighth month of the lunar calendar, the Mid-Autumn Festival is a time of bonding, love, and family; bringing people together to celebrate the moon herself - or as the legend goes, the story of Hou Yi the archer and his wife Chang-Er who now resides within the luminous moon, forever immortal.
The festival commemorates more than just its mythology and the moon though, it commemorates the season of labour and harvest - celebrating the fruits of toil and hard work amongst family and friends. It is believed that the moon is her brightest and most luminous self on this day, the phases of the moon also represent the ever-changing phases of relationships - and is thus, a festival of remembering, cherishing, and preparing for all the past phases and the ones that are to come with our loved ones.
Houses are decked with lanterns, festive ornaments, fruits, and decadent treats - the most noteworthy of them being mooncakes. The tradition of indulging in a luxurious piece of the moon herself has been around for centuries - right from the Tang dynasty. Over the years, as the world has modernized, so have traditions - while still sticking true to their roots and symbolism, mooncakes have today, become a uniquely decadent treat coming in an array of varieties, shapes and flavours - making them a much-awaited favourite of people of all ages, and even amongst those who do not celebrate the festival.
