Is there anything you do as a tradition?
“On the day of the Mid-Autumn Festival, we eat taro and sesame rice dumplings.”
Though the meaning of the Mid-autumn festival was lost on the subject, she seems to have been able to attribute the traditional food that is eaten during the festival. She had heard from her parents many of the food that should be eaten on certain holidays. The Mid-autumn festival is a harvest festival that is celebrated by many of the southeastern countries of Asia. It was often to give thanks for the harvest and gathering of family. Often also a day seen for praying for longevity and a good future.
Often shared among family, food remains a big part of culture and a reminder to family traditions and culture whether or not the meaning behind the festival is remembered.
