Moon Cake Festival

In the Yuan Dynasty, the Han people against the government at the time of the Mongol Yuan Dynasty, and the rebels, led by Yuan Shu Zhang, plan to take over the government. Shu puzzling over how to unite the people to revolt on the same day without being noticed by the Mongolian government.

One of his trusted advisors finally found an idea. A news spread that there will be a big disaster that will befall the land of China and only by eating moon cakes which were distributed by the rebels to prevent the disaster. The moon cake is only distributed to the people of Han, who will find the message "Revolution on the fifteenth of the month eight" at the time of opening.

Because of that notice, the people are brought together to act on a specified date to overthrow the Yuan Dynasty. And since that time the moon cake became an integral part of the Mid-Autumn Festival.
