Yup, it starts on Thur Sept 11 2003. I wish I was in HK, see what event they have on! Find out about the legend of the moon festival (and mooncake recipes)

Although my experiences of mid-autumn festival is not much, I do get to eat the occasional mooncake at home. I remember mom buying us the plastic lanterns that are in the shape of a lotus flower when we were really young. We use to see if we can catch the glimpse of the full moon (yes in Limerick!). But there is not usuall y anything fancy about it. I remember looking at many pictures of hanging lanterns, and many, many flowers, with family enjoying themselves on a evening out together. Then when we got the Chinese Channel, we saw clips of people enjoying themselves, making me even more jealous. Eveyone is happy, but so was I. I was tih family, that is what matter most.
