WTF is Mooncake Festival?

Mooncake Festival? That’s probably one of the silliest ideas I’ve ever heard, along with astrology and fortune-telling.

Mid-Autumn Festival is commonly referred to as Mooncake Festival, Tang-Lung (lantern) Festival or Lantern Festival. If this trend continues, we may well have renamed many other festivals in our calendar.

Here’s a preview of our bleak future:

Chinese New Year will cease to exist. In its place will be an Object Oriented Celebration of various items. Mandarin Celebration, Ang-Pau Festival, Biscuit Celebration and Operasi No-Fireworks will be some of the synonymous names given to this Object Oriented Celebration.

Thaipusam will also cease to exist. This time, the names given to the replacement Object Oriented Celebration would range from Kavadi Fest, Coconut Bash, Sri-Mahamariaman – Batu Caves Tour, to Celebration of 272-Steps.



Happy Mooncake Festival!




This post was entirely in irony, and hopefully you have a stress-free Mid Autumn unlike me rushing for a report due for submission on Wednesday noon.

Yes, thats true. Many festivities have lost their meaning. We still have a ball of a time nonetheless. That's the whole point of festivitals.

Vyv:
I'm going to get some mooncakes soon, maybe this weekend (a week late) cos it will be better priced. :-)
