The Moon Festival is a Chinese traditional holiday that was brought to Taiwan by the immigrants. Local Taiwanese gazetteers refer to numerous Moon-Festival-related activities such as admiring the full moon, eating moon cake, drinking wine, and placing bets on the moon cake. During the period of the Japanese colonization of Taiwan, many Western concepts were imported into the country. Part of this was the Japanese government's drive to encourage the Taiwanese to engage in travel. While travelling, the Taiwanese started to admire the full moon in parks and on steam boats. This had a clear effect on Moon Festival activities. In fact, after 1945, boat trips just to view the full moon emerged into the local scene. Still later, under the effect of industrialization, villagers started to move into the city. This set the stage for more changes to the Moon Festival activities. For the migrants who craved the warm feeling of home, barbecuing turned out to be the easiest and most suitable social activity to bring people together. In only ten years, the Moon Festival barbecue made its mark on the Taiwanese way of life as we now know it.
