Chang Er did not down those Immortality Pills for nothing.
In a less legendary tale, did you know, paper slips were embedded in mooncakes and/ or incorporated in the surface design to form a puzzle to create an uprising against the Yuan Dynasty?
Overtime, this tradition and festivity has been preserved over the generations and as time goes by, innovation and creativity has added varieties to mooncakes. From classic baked mooncakes with salted egg yolks to trendier mooncakes with unique creativities on ingredient, skin, sizes and many more.
Despite all innovations, the mooncake festival is still being celebrated along the same core values - Family Reunion. The shape of mooncake resembles the full moon, representing reunion of the family.
People have been taking this opportunity to send mooncakes to friends, families and loved ones, wishing them one another a blessed celebration while enjoying the mooncakes together.
The mooncake is often paired with tea and of course candles and paper lanterns.
