Happy Mid-Autumn Festival, everyone! Enjoy a moon cake and light a lantern to celebrate this wonderful day.
This is one of my favorite Chinese holidays because I have some fantastic childhood memories associated with this festival. I remember standing on the back porch and my mom would light candle-lit lanterns. My brother and I got to snap brand-new glow sticks and wave them around in the air as we ran around the porch. Then, once we were exhausted from running around waving our lit glow sticks, we would go inside the house and eat moon cakes. My mom and brother would eat normal moon cakes, but my mom would always get me the kind without egg yolk because I dislike plain egg yolks. Those were happy, happy days. :)
