Mid-Autumn Festival Notice

DFRobot Sep 18 2013 269
The Mid-Autumn Festival is around the corner. All DFRobot staffs will have a 3-day holiday , from Sep 19th to Sep 21st, to enjoy their time with family and friends. We might not be able to reply your emails promptly. Your orders from Sep.19 to Sep.21 are to be processed on Sep.22 ( GMT+8). Sorry for all the inconveniences.

The Mid-Autumn Festival (Chinese characters is “???”) is one of the traditional Chinese holidays. It is held on the 15th day of the 8th lunar month. Chinese legends say that the moon is at its brightest and roundest on this day. Based on the Gregorian calendar, this year's Mid-Autumn Festival will be held on September 19th. 

In fact, many ancient August Moon folktales are about a moon maiden with a beautiful name --  'Chang Er'(??). And on this magical occasion, children who make wishes to the Lady on the Moon will find their dreams come true.

We celebrate this festival by eating Mooncake. Mooncakes are to Mid-Autumn Festival what mince pies are to Christmas. The seasonal round cakes traditionally have a sweet filling of lotus seed paste or red bean paste and often have one or more salted duck eggs in the center to represent the moon. This year Five kernel Mooncake?????? has become a very hot issue in China, since a lot of people find it tastes very… weird. There are even someone claim that Five kernel Mooncakes don’t deserve to exsit in this world, o(???)o.

Anyway, hope your dreams come true, and Happy Mid-Autumn Festival!
