While it might be Spring in Australia, people of the Northern Hemisphere Asian countries are preparing for the second biggest festival of the year, the Mid-Autumn Festival. The festival is all about eating delicious Chinese Mooncakes and spending time with family and friends. Decorating and displaying lanterns has become an integral symbol of the festival. You can buy a variety of mooncakes including traditional pastry styles filled with bean paste and salted duck egg yolks or modern varieties made with ice-cream, chocolate or jelly. And while it may not be possible to gather in person this year, it’s still a great time to connect. Sharing round mooncakes among family members during the week of the festival signifies the completeness and unity of families. Celebrations can last for days but they may only last one day in Australia.
