Mid-autumn festival which falls on the 15th day of the eighth Chinese Lunar Calendar. This is a historical festival rather than a religious one.
Legend has indicated that the secret about a plot against the Mongolians was hidden inside the mooncake and the mooncake was distributed widely.
Lanterns were used at night as signals from higher grounds and hilltop. Today, this festival is celebrated with moon cakes and latern hanging on the house. The lantern and the moon cakes have attracted many children and adults attention. In certain area, lantern procession and competition are held.
Krista Kindy held theirs over the weekends. Kids were enthusiastic of 'cause. Another experience to be told.

Kids, whom get to taste the civilization of early childhood education.Which has advance so much better over the years compare in the 80's. They glare thru' the kindy with each individual fashion statement,unlike my days in kindy-i had to wear uniform.
They had lantern walk around the neighbourhood via playgroud.What more could this kindy provide besides having a playgroud next to it, [ its one big playgroud, you could play paint ball ey] 6-7 tutors plus assistant teacher, 2 session either full day/ half day and what's a plus is limited seats only.90 students for year to date '08 and 2009 enrolments has begin.
Kids, whom gets better toys now.Plastic & colourful playhouse,gadgets and gets what they want.Unlike my days-i only had barbies,beach and public parks to look forward too.
