Mid-Autumn Moon Festival

In case we had forgotten why we had the day off from school today, google reminded us:

Mid-Autumn or Moon Festival is today, the 15th day of the eighth month following the lunar calendar.  In Taiwan many families celebrate with moon cakes, pomelo fruit and BBQ.

Sample platter for teachers at school.  Some moon cakes are sweet, some "salty" (usually meat-filled).  
We like the sweet ones!
