Colorful Hong Kong: mid-autumn Festival

In Chinese culture has many wonderful traditions. One of them is the ancient mid-autumn Festival (chin. Trad. 中秋節), which is celebrated in the month on the 15th day of the 8th month of the Chinese calendar, which roughly corresponds to the second half of September — early October. Its significance is second only to Chinese new year (Chinese. Trad. 春節), or the spring Festival. A modern interpretation of the mid-autumn Festival is a night admiring the Moon, with fantastic illumination, lighting of incense, food moon cakes (labini, cat. Trad. 月餅) and launch the lanterns. Here is how it is celebrated in Hong Kong on September 29, 2012.
