Moon cake

GW Confucius Institute with the GW Language Center, the Chinese Program in the department of East Asian Languages and Literatures at GW and the Sigur Center for Asian Studies all co-hosted hosted the annual Mid Autumn Festival this year on September 15th. Guests enjoyed an assortment of food including Chinese Dim Sum and of course moon cake (月饼), the traditional treat to celebrate the Mid-Autumn Festival. It was a fun night, as teachers, students and members of the community all came out to celebrate and mingle. The GW Confucius Institute also provided guests information about the origins of this festival and how this holiday is celebrated across Asia. It was a fun night!
