Mid-Autumn Festival. Always.

The last Sunday of September was the Chinese Mid-Autumn Festival (中秋节), a time to get together with friends or family to eat mooncakes, gaze at the brightest full moon, and celebrate togetherness. 

After 7 years of living in China, this and the Chinese Spring Festival are the two Asian festivities I always make sure to celebrate, which we did this year by having friends over for white lotus, red bean paste and other mooncakes ("stuffing friends with" would be more accurate, LOL), drinking delicious loose-leaf oolong tea, and just being together. 

Some traditions are well worth adopting and maintaining.
