The implication of moon cake in Mid Autumn Festival
The moon cake is round, which symbolizes reunion and implies happy reunion. Bai reflects people's good wishes for family reunion.
It is said that eating moon Zhi cakes on the mid autumn festival began in Yuan Dynasty. At that time, the vast majority of the people in the Central Plains could
not bear the cruel rule of the ruling class of the Yuan Dynasty and revolted against the Yuan Dynasty.
Zhu Yuanzhang united with all kinds of resistance forces to prepare for the uprising. However, the officers and soldiers of the court searched closely and it was
very difficult to transmit information.
Liu Bowen, a military strategist, came up with a plan. He ordered his subordinates to hide the notes containing the "August 15 night uprising" into the cakes,
and then sent people to send them to the uprising armies in different places,
On the evening of August 15th they responded to the notice of the uprising. On the day of the uprising, all the rebels responded together.
Soon, Xu Da captured the Yuan Dadu and the uprising was successful. When the news came, Zhu Yuanzhang was so happy that he quickly gave his oral instructions
that in the coming Mid Autumn Festival,
Let all the officers and men enjoy themselves with the people, and reward the ministers with the "moon cake" which secretly transmits information when they
started the army. Since then, the production of "moon cakes" has become more and more sophisticated, with more varieties.
After the Mid Autumn Festival, the custom of eating moon cakes spread among the people.
The moon cake, which means reunion, should have started in the Ming Dynasty. If we synthesize the information about moon cakes and the folk customs of the
Mid Autumn Festival in Ming Dynasty, we can see the historical track of the reunion of moon cakes
After the Mid Autumn Festival, the whole family gathered around to eat moon cakes and fruits. Because the moon cake is also round, and the family share to eat,
so gradually formed the moon cake on behalf of family reunion.
I wish you a Happy Mid Autumn Festival, happy reunion!
The new program is expected to cover private
The new program is expected to cover private-equity and venture-capital investments in advanced semiconductors, quantum computing and some forms of artificial intelligence, the Wall Street Journal reported on Friday, citing people familiar with the matter. It is not a "surprising" move for Washington to extend its hostility against China's high-tech development into financial areas, but clearly it is not going to be an effective way, Ma Jihua, a veteran industry analyst, told the Global Times on Sunday. Restricting investment takes a relatively long time to produce the desired results for Washington, Ma said, and there will be a series of unpredictable events along the way.
