Autumn Moon Festival 2011 - A Warm Sunny Evening with the Group 88 Families
The Autumn Moon Festival is a Chinese celebration. The Autumn Moon Festival 中秋 (Zhōngqiū​) is held on the 15th of the 8th month of the Chinese Lunar Calendar year. Roughly, close to the Fall equinox. This year we had great weather and it was earlier than in other years. It is one of the more important holidays celebrated by Chinese people. In some ways it is kind of like Thanksgiving in the United States (which started as a Harvest Festival of sorts). A common theme is great food. Each family brought their favorite Chinese dish to share. Margaret also made wonderful traditional Moon Cakes. It was a great evening and the kids really enjoyed getting together.
