The Mid-Autumn Festival is held on the fifteenth day of the eighth
month of the Chinese lunar calendar, on a full moon day. This is always
in mid-fall, sometime in later September or early October.
Moon cakes are the food of choice on this holiday. These cakes are
filled with sweet-tasting bean paste or with lotus seeds or another
filling. Originally, the Festival was closely connected with making
offerings to the moon god to get a bountiful harvest. Today, most are
not moon worshipers, but the cake is still shaped as a moon for that
Traditionally, many families of Chinese descent in Malaysia would
make moon cakes of a variety of types, have festive family dinners, and
go on marches while holding up lit Chinese lanterns at night. Today it
is much more common to buy pre-made, packaged moon cakes, although some
people still hunt out traditional hand-made ones.
