Afternoon guys! I’m a taiwanese. Just wanna tell you something you might not know but are curious about.
If you’ve been staying in Taiwan long enough, you’d notice that the Moon Festival is quite a big day for taiwanese. EVERYBODY will have a barbecue on that day - chances are most of us will even barbecue for a whole week.
However, this was NOT a tradition before. The idea of BBQing on the Moon Festival was actually originated from a commercial ad of BBQ sauce few years ago.
We all know it. And we’re still doing it… because it’s EXCITED!
What a successful marketing lol
I’ve put more details on this in an article, including 3 moon festival stories, feel free to check it out if you’re interested: http://pics.ee/14x21
