Moon Festival = Pomelo Hat Time

YouTube Link

Over the last several days Chinese all over the world have been celebrating the Moon Festival or Mid-Autumn Festival.  They have been gathering with family, eating moon cakes and sometimes putting pomelo hats on their kids. Why do they put pomelo hats on? Some say wearing the pomelo rind enables the moon lady to see the the children better.  If she can see the children she is better able to answer their prayers.

The Moon Festival falls on the 15th of the 8th lunar month. This year that's September 22, 2010.

Happy Moon Festival everyone!
