About Chinese Mid-Autumn Moon Festival:
There are harvest celebrations or festivals in many cultures. Chinese celebrate harvest with the 中秋節Mid-Autumn-Moon-Festival. It is over 1,000-year-old tradition for the Chinese to reflect on the bounty of the summer harvest, the fullness of the moon and the myth of the immortal goddess, Chang E, who lives in the moon. Millions of Mooncakes are eaten. Moon Festival comes with many flavors, and shaped like a full moon, which symbolize the reunion of the families! The festival is often thought of as “Chinese Thanksgiving” because of its spirit of gratitude and abundant food.
Chinese Arts Alliance establishes a different kind of celebration. We select special Cantonese cuisine, Dim-Sum, as its main feast to celebrate the bountiful harvest in the fall.
點心, pronounced as “Dim-Sum” in Cantonese Chinese, is prepared as small bite-sized or individual portions of food traditionally served in small steamer baskets or on small plates. Literally 點 “Dim” means touch, and 心 “Sum” means heart. “Dim-Sum” is so delicious; it truly touches your heart!
