Happy Hello Kitty Moon Festival - 2007

Wednesday, September 26th, 2007

Hong Kong celebrates the Moon Festival, also known as the Mid-Autumn Lantern Festival, to quote the official website.

Hong Kong pays homage to the Harvest Moon with a spectacular 15-day Mid-Autumn Lantern Celebration filled with excitement and colour as families and friends gather to eat mooncakes and bask in the glow of the golden orb. This heart-warming celebration is a wonderful blend of ancient Chinese fable, beautifully crafted lanterns, scrumptious food and fun for everyone. This year, celebrations are extra special as it’s the 10th anniversary of the establishment of Hong Kong as a Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) of China. So join the crowds and double your excitement as you experience Hong Kong’s vibrant living culture…

It is also that time of year where you get given Mooncakes.

During the Mid-Autumn Festival people eat sweet tasting cakes called moon cakes made of ground lotus and sesame seed paste, egg yolk and other ingredients. Moon cakes symbolise the gathering of friends and family and are an indispensable part of the Mid-Autumn festivities. Moon cakes are also associated with the overthrow of the Mongol invaders in the 14th century. The story goes that Chinese revolutionaries planned to revolt against the government on the fifteenth day of the eighth month. This message was passed around hidden in moon cakes amongst the people who subsequently rose up and overthrew the oppressive tyrant.

Of course it wouldn’t be complete without Kitty, so if you need to make your own Kitty Mooncakes, here is how! Your own Hello Kitty Moon Cake Maker!
