Known elsewhere around the world as the Mid-Autumn Festival, Lantern Festival, or Zhongqiu Festival, the Mooncake Festival in Malaysia is a celebration of unity and familial harmony. With origins that are believed to be rooted in the tradition of making sacrifices to the Moon Goddess for a bountiful year’s end harvest, the modern incarnation offers a chance for revelers to savor extremely sweet mooncakes and share them with relatives, bosses, customers, friends, and newfound acquaintances in a display of generosity and inclusion.
