Happy Moon Festival

This Friday is the 15th day of the 8th Lunar month of the Chinese Lunar Calendar, which is called Moon Festival or Mid-Autumn Festival. This is a very important festival for Chinese people, and we usually have family reunions to celebrate full moon. On this day, all of us will eat lovely moon cakes and try to identify the shadows on the moon as Chang'e or the Jade Rabbit. I kind of feel sad for Chang'e. Imagine yourself floating to the moon and staying there forever. If you are interested in these myths concerning the Moon Festival, you can find them on Wikipedia. Anyway, I still like moon cakes though they make me fat.

Happy Moon Festival
to all my dear friends
