Excerpt from Wikipedia
The Moon Festival is a long lived festival celebrated by Chinese people and Vietnamese people (even though they celebrate it differently), dating back over 3,000 years to moon worship in China's Shang Dynasty.

Ch'ang-O, according to Chinese legend is the moon goddess who resides on the moon. On Mid-Autumn day, the full moon night of the 8th lunar month, an altar is set up on the open air facing the moon to worship her. New pastries are put on the altar for Her to bless. She endows her worshipers with beauty.

It is a date that parallels the autumn and spring Equinoxes of the solar calendar, when the moon is supposedly at its fullest and roundest. The traditional food of this festival are the many different varieties of mooncake, which are given as gifts during this time.

The Mid-Autumn Moon Festival is one of the two most important holidays in the Chinese calendar, the other being the Chinese New Year, and is a legal holiday in several countries. Farmers celebrate the end of the summer harvesting season on this date. Traditionally, on this day, Chinese family members and friends will gather to admire the bright mid-autumn harvest moon, and eat moon cakes and pomeloes together.


Moon cakes may have lotus cream filings or fruit jam fillings, even nuts.
