Mid-Autumn


Mid-Autumn

Just some shots from our little Mid-Autumn celebration at home. This festival follows the Chinese lunar calendar, falling on the 15th of the 8th month, on the night where the moon is at its fullest and brightest. There are many traditions and legends that are associated with this festival, but these days most of us 'westernised' Chinese just stick to eating mooncakes, letting the kids walk around the neighbourhood with lanterns, and admiring the moon. 
 
The Chinese text is the first verse of a song about the mid-autumn moon shining above our homes. 
 
Supplies in EXIF, thanx for looking! =)



    Lovely photos and I love seeing the Asian style background and embellishments. It's always interesting to read about festivals and traditions from different parts of the world, too. I'm also glad to see you are doing an autumn Project Life layout, since that's about where I am at the moment, LOL.

    The lanterns are so cute and I love the moonpie photos!
