The Origin Of Mooncake

Sep 24, 2018

The Mid-Autumn Festival eating moon cakes began in the Yuan Dynasty. At that time, the people of the Central Plains were unbearable to endure the brutal rule of the ruling class of the Yuan Dynasty, and they fought against the Yuan. Zhu Yuanzhang united various resistance forces to prepare for the uprising. However, the officers and men of the court were very strict in searching and it was very difficult to deliver the news. The military teacher Liu Bowen came up with a plan to order the papers containing the "August 15th Uprising" to be hidden in the cake, and then sent people to the local insurgents to inform them to respond to the uprising on the evening of August 15. . On the day of the uprising, the various volunteers responded in unison, and the insurgents were like a fire.


Soon, Xu Da attacked Yuan Dadu and the uprising succeeded. When the news came, Zhu Yuanzhang was so happy that he quickly passed down his mouth. In the upcoming Mid-Autumn Festival, all the soldiers and the people would have fun together, and the "moon cake", which secretly transmitted information when the soldiers started, used to be the ministers of the festival. Since then, the "moon cake" has become more elaborate and more variety, and the larger one is like a disc, which has become a gift. The custom of eating moon cakes in the Mid-Autumn Festival will be spread among the people.

Some places have also formed a lot of special Mid-Autumn Festival customs.

According to legend, in ancient China, the emperor had a ritual system of spring festivals and autumn festivals.
