September 12
Mid-Autumn Festival
This is one very important festival for the Chinese people and also one of the loveliest nights of the year. It was done in memory of a 14th century uprising against the Mongols when rebels wrote the call to revolt on pieces of paper and embedded them in cakes, which was then smuggled to compatriots. Today, in commemoration of the festival, people eat special sweet cakes known as "Moon Cakes" made of ground lotus and sesame. Children also get to play with colored lanterns and watch the huge autumn moon rise. Public parks such as the Victoria Park will be alive with thousands of lanterns in all shapes and sizes.
