Mid-Autumn Festival is one of the most important festivals for the Chinese. It is an opportunity to gather with family, show gratitude for the harvest and the opportunity to invoke the fortune. To celebrate this festivity, ancient Chinese people made their own mooncakes, then ate them together with their family and close relatives. The elders of the family would cut the cake into small pieces and share them with family members as a symbol of family ties. The round shape of these cakes represent the completeness and unity of the family.
