Mid-Autumn festival

A hallmark of the CISM school community’s annual commemorative events, the Mid-Autumn Festival takes center stage once again this season of spring.
 
One of the most celebrated festivals in China, the Mid-Autumn festival is a cultural heritage where communities gather to celebrate togethernes in gratitude. Lanterns are hung, mooncakes become a staple part of dinner, and lantern riddles and dice games are played by families and friends. The festival celebrates harmonious relationships, family reunions, and peace.
 
In CISM, the festival is marked by having the traditional dice game, also known as Bo Bing 博饼. This traditional game involves six dice and a China bowl with 63 different prizes for the players. In Chinese Filipino community, the dice game is known as Pua Tiong Chiu.
