When it happened few weeks ago , filling my screen with laughters , Cigar Guy never never disappears from my eyes. I collected my favourite pictures online for Cigar Guy , just to remember him how much he brought to us all , though nothing about Golf .
Have you ever been to Xiamen ? Have you ever known about Xiamen ? Do you in Xiamen Chinese New Year is never as hot as Mid-Autumn Festival? A recent China Daily article gave you a link to the above questions .
The moon is becoming rounder and brighter - so the Mid-Autumn Festival must be just around the corner.
And people are surrounded by pile of mooncakes which would cost them months to consume.
Yet in Xiamen, a coastal city of East China's Fujian Province, you find a pack of six dice inside after opening every gaudily-decorated box of mooncakes.
Gambling? Right, but it is definitely legal. Because the stakes among the locals are mooncakes - and that is how this unique celebrating activity has got its
Chinese name "Bo Bing." It is played only around the Mid-Autumn Festival.
Moon Cake Festival: A Mid-Autumn Festival (Chung Chiu), the third major festival of the Chinese calendar, is celebrated on the 15th day of the eighth month. This festival corresponds to harvest festival s observed by Western cultures (in Hong Kong, it is held in conjunction with the annual Lantern Festival).
Contrary to what most people believe, this festival probably has less to do with harvest festivities than with the philosophically minded chinese of old. The union of man's spirit with nature in order to achieve perfect harmony was the fundamental canon of Taoism, so much so that contemplation of nature was a way of life.
