Mid Autumn Festival:


The Mid-Autumn Festival is a festival celebrated notably by the Chinese and Asian people. The festival is held on the 15th day of the 8th month of the lunar calendar with a full moon at night, corresponding to mid-September to early October of the Gregorian calendar. Mooncakes are typically eaten during this festival. It is a rich pastry typically with sweet-bean or lotus-seed paste.

In modern celebration, it is still an occasion for outdoor reunions among friends and relatives to eat mooncakes and watch the moon, a symbol of harmony and unity.

Hari Raya Haji:


Hari Raya Haji, also known as the Festival of Sacrifice, commemorates Prophet Ibrahim’s complete faith and trust in God. This recounted in the story of God commanding Ibrahim to sacrifice his son, Ismail, a commandment that Ibrahim responded to with obedience. God stopped him, and provided him with a sheep to substitute as a sacrifice, instead of his son.

This act reminds worshippers of willingness of Prophet Ibrahim to offer up even his own flesh and blood to God. The animal is then cleaned and the meat carved up and distributed to worshippers and the needy. This week our students made Ketupats (a Malay traditional dish) using strips of papers for their Hari Raya Haji crafts! They also drew batik designs to decorate the alternating squares using markers! Let’s see their artworks!
