Happy Mid-Autumn Festival

Since Dragon and Goat lived in China for a time (and where Adam met Alli), the Mid-Autumn Festival is an important holiday on the D&G calendar.

Also known as the Moon Festival, the Mid-Autumn Festival is a big festival in China celebrating the harvest of rice and wheat with paper lanterns and mooncakes.

You might also make offerings to the Moon Goddess of Immortality who stole an immortality elixir from her husband (either out of love or fear that he would be a tyrannical despot, depending on the legend you believe) and went to the moon to live as an immortal by herself.

It’s a good time to check out China town or your local Chinese grocery store or restaurant and be sure to get the mooncakes with the egg yolks! They’re egg-cellent…
