Mid-Autumn Festival is one of the traditional festival in China. People would climb hills to appreciate the moon and eat mooncake at that day.

Mid-Autumn Festival is one of the traditional festivals in China, which originated from Tang Dynasty. Generally speaking, people would climb hills to appreciate the moon and eat mooncake at that day.

中秋节始于唐代,为中国其中一个传统节日。一般来说,中秋当天人们会登高,边赏月边吃月饼。

Mid-Autumn Festival falls on the 15th day of the 8th lunar month, and it is September 27 in 2015. FYI: remember September 27 is holiday! Remember September 27 is holiday! Remember September 27 is holiday! (For important thing, shout three times!) Oh no, just pop-in my mind that September 27 is Saturday.

按中国农历算,中秋节为农历八月十五, 按公历算,也就是今年9月27日。在这里提醒一下,9月27日是放假!9月27日是放假!9月27日是放假!重要的事情要说三遍,咦,等等,那天好像是星期六。

So, why mid-Autumn Festival is on the 15th day of the 8th lunar month?

好啦,问题来了,为什么中秋节是农历八月十五呢?

Legend has it that Hou Yi, a mythological figure was granted elixirs from Queen Mother of Heaven and he gave them to his wife Chang E for keeping. However, Hou Yi’s student forced Chang E to hand over the elixirs. Chang E of course refused to hand over the elixirs, instead, she swallowed all of them. Then Chang E flied to the Moon. That date was the 15th day of the 8th lunar month.

传说,神话人物后羿从王母娘娘处获得长生不老药,并交由老婆嫦娥保管。但是,后羿的徒弟一直觊觎这些长生不老药。当然,嫦娥作为一个贤良淑德的老婆,当然打死都不交出仙丹,那怎么办?嫦娥见无处可逃,果断了把仙丹全吞了(霸气)。吞了全部仙丹后,嫦娥突然飘了起来,并且飞向月亮,而这天正在农历八月十五(传说阿哈)。

Wait! What’s the relationship between Chang E and mooncake?

等等!嫦娥和月饼有个啥关系啊?

In order to meet Chang E again, Hou Yi learned to make mooncakes from a god, and put them on the northwest corner in his house. According to the god’s suggestion, he called Chang E three times. To his surprise, Chang E really came back from the moon. After that mooncakes become popular.

为了与妻子,也就是嫦娥相见,后羿向一位神仙习得月饼大法,因为神仙说你想见你老婆,就做月饼吧,做完把他们放在西北边,并大喊嫦娥三声(重要的事情说三遍?),你老婆就会回来啦。后羿照做,果然,她老婆从月亮慢慢地飘回地球了。从此,月饼也流行了。

So, wanna make something for the one you love at Mid-Autumn Festival? Snowy mooncake is a good choice.

所以,想在中秋节送东西给你爱的人?冰皮月饼是你不二选择!
