Chinese Mid-Autumn Moon celebration is the equivalent of a Thanksgiving holiday. It is to appreciate rich harvests, hard work and family. A popular tradition of the Mid-Autumn Moon observance is to eat “moon cakes”. Moon Cakes are pastries filled with red bean or lotus bean paste with a yellow cooked yolk or salted duck egg in the middle to symbolize the moon.
