A very happy Mid-Autumn Festival to you! I hope that you’re all enjoying the holidays today in Hong Kong. The most famous features of the Festival are moon cakes and lanterns…and here is a beautiful lantern photographed by my beautiful daughter Beatrice – thank you Bea! The Mid-Autumn Festival is also called – you guessed it – the Moon Festival, and sometimes the Mooncake Festival or the Lantern Festival! There are some lovely Chinese folk stories associated with the Moon Festival, including the Legend of the Moon Goddess, Chang’e, and the Legend of the Rabbit in the Moon. If you want to read more, you can click here: http://www.moonfestival.org/the-legend-of-chang-e.html, or, better yet, read my Chinese Calendar Tale, The Tale of Rhonda Rabbit! You can even buy it here: http://www.auspicioustimes.com/product/the-tale-of-rhonda-rabbit/!
