Mid-Autumn Festival (中秋節)
Mid-Autumn Festival (中秋節), or Chinese Moon Festival, is earlier than usual this year, although by Chinese reckoning it's still on the 15th day of the eighth lunar month. Be that as it is, there are six days to go: 18 September 2005. FYI: the day after, 19 September, Monday, is a public holiday in Hong Kong. More about the Moon Festival, one of Mister Bijou's favourite local festivals, later in the week.
