Mid-Autumn Festival is held every year on the 15th day of the eighth month of the lunar calendar.
The festival celebrates the gathering off a milies, the thanksgiving for the years harvest and prayer for the blessings of marriage, children, longevity and good fortune.
Making and sharing moon cakes is the signature tradition and the holiday is celebrated on this day. So this year our XMandarin students went to a cake shop, to learn how to make the mooncake by themselves.
It was a really funny event that both students and the school staff enjoyed.
Every month XMandarin hosts activities like this for foreigners in Qingdao and we would love that you come and join us!
See you next time!!
