Mooncakes are eaten during the Mid-Autumn Festival as a sign of "reunion." Moon cakes, also called Hu cakes, palace cakes, moon cakes, harvest cakes, reunion cakes, etc., are offerings to worship the moon god during the Mid-Autumn Festival in ancient times. "August and fifteen months are round, and Mid-Autumn Festival moon cakes are fragrant and sweet." This famous proverb tells the custom of eating moon cakes on the night of Mid-Autumn Festival. Moon cakes were originally used to sacrifice to the moon god. Later, people gradually took the Mid-Autumn Festival to admire the moon and taste moon cakes as a symbol of family reunion. Gradually, moon cakes became a must-have gift for festivals.
