About Chinese Mid-Autumn Moon Festival:

The Chinese celebrate the harvest with the 中秋節Mid-Autumn-Moon-Festival. It is a more than 1,000-year-old tradition for them 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. Mooncakes come with many flavors, and are shaped like a full moon, which symbolizes 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 of Nashville establishes a different kind of celebration. They have selected 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! Everyone need s a bit of comfort from Dim sum.
