Mid Autumn Moon Festival Celebration *

Happy  Mid –  Autumn Moon Festival     ! 

Today’s Lap book  is celebrating a family holiday. The Mid Autumn Moon festivals  celebrating the moon and harvest season. My husband is American Born Chinese (ABC) and enjoys sharing the holiday with friends and family. He usually cooks and I decorate and makes these small books for the kids to explain the holiday and give them some to do.  Enjoy this holiday with us :

        Lap book /Activities  Book : 

  • The book is made with Red scrapbook paper – Cut  5 by 7 pieces.
  • I used free graphics from P interest   and activities. Printed out and glued on the pages.
  • And punched wholes on the side and strung with read/ gold  cord.

Red represents fire and is the most popular color in China. It is also the national color representing happiness, beauty, vitality, good luck, success and good fortune. Red is famously popular in relation to anything Chinese and is widely used during festivals and important events like weddings.

In general, the Mid-Autumn Festival is a chance for families to spend time together, although there are certain traditions.

One of the most common ways to celebrate is by eating mooncakes (or Bánh Trung Thu in Vietnamese) – a dense, sweet pastry that’s baked or steamed and typically enjoyed with tea.

Most are filled with lotus paste and salted egg yolk while others contain red bean or date paste, as well as fruit, nuts and seeds. People will also give mooncakes to family members and colleagues. Most Asian markets sell them  – So buy and Share.   Lisa
