Do you know why Taiwanese eat mooncakes during the Moon Festival?
In the late Qing dynasty, mooncakes were said to be coproducts of the revolution in which the founder of the Ming dynasty (1368-1644), Zhu Yuanzhang (朱元璋), overthrew the regime established by the Mongolians. For common people, however, the relationship between mooncakes and the revolution seems to have submerged into history and anecdotes. (Some scholars suspect that the legend was fabricated by the revolutionaries who subverted the Qing royalty)
Mooncake is All About Family
The idea of cake, in China, is to deliver gratitude to the ancestors and the deities of heaven and earth, to convey the blessing to friends and relatives, and to picture hopes and imaginations for life.
In conclusion, the Taiwanese have mooncakes to celebrate family reunions.
