The holidays are back in China with this week the National Holiday celebration 7-10 days and the last week of September was the Mid-Autumn festival. We receive moon cakes several weeks ago to celebrate the Mid-Autumn festival from our Chinese friends. They are a traditional food gift for this holiday. My favorite is the red bean with nuts and my wife is the egg yolk type. There are many different types and are giving out as gifts during this holiday.
The National Day holiday starts from October 1-7th and it is the second largest holiday only after Chinese New Year.
As always with major holidays in China it is NOT recommended for foreigners during this time because all tourist areas and transportation are very busy and CROWDED to say the least.
But you if you have family like we do in China, it is a great celebration during these times.
