Changing the homepage background with vivid images illustrating special occasions around the year has become a Google Doodle’s norm, and the Mid-Autumn Festival is not an outlier.
The newly-changed Google’s cover features two people enjoying the tea and mooncakes while watching the full moon on the Mid-Autumn night.
Mid-Autumn, also known as the “Children’s Festival”, is considered an important festival in Vietnam, second only after Lunar New Year. The day is the perfect time for family gathering, joining lantern parades with cheerful drumming sounds, watching lion dances. On such occasion, parents also present their children with colorful lanterns, masks and other toys as a reward for being obedient. Mooncake is kind of a must-have dish on the long-awaited day.
