The Mid-Autumn Festival has been celebrated for thousands of years on the 15th day of the eighth month of the Chinese lunar calendar when the moon is thought to be at its roundest and brightest. It is all about spending time with your family and relaxing during the Moon Festival, which is sometimes referred to as the Moon Festival and is only second in importance to the Chinese New Year.

The mooncake, a classic pastry treat considered an essential delicacy during the festival, is seeing new twists by global businesses and becoming a window of cross-cultural exchange. For example, the Louvre Museum and Haagen-Dazs released an ice cream mooncake collection.

The Shanghai Museum, the Metropolitan Museum of Art (The Met), and LYFEN have all released a new mooncake collection titled “East Meets West.”
