In China, this special occasion is also considered a harvest festival since farmers have just finished gathering their crops and bringing in fruits from the orchards. Overwhelmed with joy when they have a bumper harvest and quite relaxed after a year of hard work, they feel it is a time for relaxation and celebration.
Moon cakes, different types of fruits like pomelo, watermelons, oranges, apples, grapes and so on -- used as food offerings -- are placed on an altar. Basking under the moonlight, the families will then sit together and take turns to admire the moon, whilst chatting and sharing moon cakes.
And come collect these beautiful decorations to light up your home!
