Today (tonight, rather) is the Chinese Moon Festival, Cecil said. I asked him if it had anything to do with mooning, and he gave me a wry look. I wonder why, though! It was a perfectly harmless question. Cecil has a dirty mind! šŸ˜›

Okay, lameness aside, here’s what I dug up about the Chinese Moon(ing :D) Festival. Thank you, Google!

I want a moon cake! šŸ˜¦ Moon .. cake .. is that what falls out of someone’s butt when they’re mooning you? Okay, not. Before Cecil reads this and clobbers me, “I officially take all that back.”

Following are bits that I liked from the Moon Festival waala article that I found ::

The Chinese Moon Festival is on the 15th of the 8th lunar month. It’s also known as the Mid-autumn Festival. Chinese culture is deeply imbedded in traditional festivals. Just like Christmas and Thanksgiving in the West, the Moon Festival is one of the most important traditional events for the Chinese. The Moon Festival is full of legendary stories. Legend says that Chang Er flew to the moon, where she has lived ever since. You might see her dancing on the moon during the Moon Festival. The Moon Festival is also an occasion for family reunions. When the full moon rises, families get together to watch the full moon, eat moon cakes, and sing moon poems. With the full moon, the legend, the family and the poems, you can’t help thinking that this is really a perfect world. That is why the Chinese are so fond of the Moon Festival.The moon cake is the food for the Moon Festival. The Chinese eat the moon cake at night with the full moon in the sky. Here are a few pictures of the typical moon cake.
