The Mid-Autumn Festival is around the corner. All Greatnameplates staffs will have a 3-day holiday, from Sep 13th to Sep 15th, to enjoy their time with family and friends. We might not be able to reply your emails promptly. Sorry for all the inconveniences.

The Mid-Autumn Festival is one of the traditional Chinese holidays. It is held on the 15th day of the 8th lunar month. Chinese legends say that the moon is at its brightest and roundest on this day. Based on the Gregorian calendar, this year’s Mid-Autumn Festival will be held on September 13th. 

We celebrate this festival by eating Mooncake. Mooncakes are to Mid-Autumn Festival what mince pies are to Christmas. The seasonal round cakes traditionally have a sweet filling of lotus seed paste or red bean paste and often have one or more salted duck eggs in the center to represent the moon. This year Five kernel Mooncake has become a very hot issue in China, since a lot of people find it tastes very… weird.

Anyway, hope your dreams come true, and Happy Mid-Autumn Festival!
