Mid-Autumn Festival in Singapore

Every September, thousands of lanterns line the streets of Chinatown for a very special occasion – The Mid-Autumn Festival, also commonly referred to as the Mooncake or Lantern Festival. The actual day of the festival falls on 30th September 2012, but there’s plenty to do, eat, and see throughout the entire month though, so be sure to join in the festivities if you happen to be in Singapore during this time!

Mid-Autumn Traditions: Mooncakes
Mooncakes are traditional Chinese pastries that contain a thick and sweet paste, typically made of lotus seed or sweet bean, surrounded by a thin layer of crust. During the festival, you can get these delicious pastries from practically every single bakery/confectionary in Singapore, especially Chinatown.

According to ancient Chinese folklore, during the overthrowing of Mongol rule, the Ming revolutionaries passed messages hidden within mooncakes to coordinate the revolt. The revolution was a huge success, and the tradition of eating these mouth-watering cakes continues to thrive till date.

Moon-Watching
The 15th day of the Eighth Lunar Month is usually calculated to coincide of a full moon, and there’s no better time to watch the moon than during this time of the year! Families typically gather outdoors during this time to socialize with each other, eat moon cakes and drink tea around a circular table as a symbol of family reunion and longevity.

Lanterns
In Chinese folklore and culture, lanterns are said to be able to chase away evil spirits and demons. Regarded as an indispensable part of traditional lunar festivals, children and their families would either buy or make colorful lanterns for the Mid-Autumn and parade them in parks or along the streets.

Chinatown – Most of the Mid-Autumn festival action takes place here in Chinatown. With thousands of lanterns dressing up its streets and traditional performances, it is hard to not get caught up in the festivities.

In fact aside from the Chinese New Year, this is one of the few times where one can witness the famed ‘Chinese Dragon Dance’ in all its splendor and finesse.

Jurong Gardens (Chinese Garden) – Every year, this quiet little garden comes to life with the Mid-Autumn celebrations and the biggest lantern exhibition of the year. The garden’s pagodas, bridges and lakes teem with activity, as families and little children walk around with their lanterns whilst soaking up the festive atmosphere.
