Moon Festival

Mid-Autumn Festival lanterns

Last week we celebrated Mid-Autumn Festival or Moon Festival. The moon is supposed to bring peace and prosperity!

Any chance to stay up past bedtime gets the kids excited.

I still love the lanterns David bought last year.  We light real candles inside!

The blood moon eclipse was on the same night.  But we came out to late.

Another year searching for the Lady in the Moon or some call her the Moon Gypsy.  There have been many legends about her so I won't even bother with Once Upon a Time...

We did a fun taste test between moon cakes made from Taiwan and ones from Hong Kong.  The kids and I can't tell the difference.  David likes the ones made in Hong Kong.

Thank you Dad and Alison for the moon cakes!
