Mid Autumn Festival – Yin Moon and Moon Cakes

We’ve a had a lovely break in the weather and Kim took the opportunity to do some sailing up the coast and boat maintenance. Tonight I drove up to Tutukaka to join him for dinner in the most beautiful full moon light.
Today is Chinese Mid-Autumn festival. Ancient agrarian society in China has celebrated harvest time during the autumn full moon since the Shang dynasty (1600–1046 BC).
Traditionally the moon signifies Yin the feminine, of rejuvenation, reunion and abundance. The moon became associated with this important occasion and the mid-autumn festival came to be a time of family reunion gathering to celebrate, give thanks and pray for good fortune. Special food like mooncakes symbolize reunion and colourful lanterns became symbolic beacons that light people’s path to prosperity and good fortune.
I wish everyone of you the happy family of joy and abundance!
