Mooncake Festival has officially started worldwide – and WEMART has prepared several exciting promos that Filipinos in the UAE will definitely enjoy as the world celebrates the second-most important holiday after Chinese New Year with a history dating back over 3,000 years, when the Emperor of China worshipped the moon for bountiful harvests.
WEMART celebrates the annual Mooncake festival with several varieties of the iconic sweet and savory round-shaped treat that is believed to bring about good fortune for the rest of the year.
Filipinos and UAE residents always anticipate this annual month-long event as WEMART brings a variety of Mooncake flavors that they love all the way from the Far East, with prices starting from only AED6!

The Mid-Autumn Festival is held on the 15th day of the 8th month of the Chinese lunisolar calendar with a full moon at night, corresponding to mid-September to early October of the Gregorian calendar. On this day, the Chinese believe that the moon is at its brightest and fullest size, coinciding with harvest time in the middle of Autumn.
Lanterns of all sizes and shapes, are carried and displayed – symbolic beacons that light people’s path to prosperity and good fortune. Mooncakes, a rich pastry typically filled with sweet-bean, egg yolk, meat or lotus-seed paste, are traditionally eaten during this festival.
