The Moon Festival

Pumpkin lantern + LED child-safe candle 

Vancouver celebrated the Zhongqui or “Moon” Festival on Saturday, September 17th.  The Moon Festival marks the lunar harvest, and our family held some festivities of our own.

The red and green lanterns were made for the occasion by our lovely children; their enthusiasm for the event ensured that this will become a family tradition. We ate homemade dumplings, mooncakes and admired the moon in the night sky. What a joyous evening!

Lanterns accompanied by bowl of acorns, pumpkins + fairies

The moon…the moon, shines so bright! Shine down on me…you’re what we’re all here to see!
