The Autumn Festival
Chinese celebrate the harvest on the Mid-Autumn Festival since ancient
times. It's the same as the custom of Thanksgiving Day in North America. The
custom of the Mid-Autumn Festival was popular in everywhere in China in the
early Tang dynasty. The Mid-Autumn is on August 15 according to lunar calendar,
it's the festival on which people will worship the moon.
On this night, the moon will be bright in the sky and people will get
together to appreciate the moon in the family. The Mid-Autumn Festival was
listed as one of China's cultural heritage in 20__ and was designed to be a
public holiday in 20__. The moon cake is regarded as an indispensable food on
Mid-Autumn Festival. People give them to their relatives and friends as gifts or
enjoy them in the family party. The traditional moon cake is printed with
cheracters "longevity", "blessing", "harmony" and so on. What a funny
The Mid-Autumn night was so quiet that the street lamps in my yard were
shaking. At this moment, my mind I feel like being homesick for month wanderer,
infected, yard above that the moon appears in the quiet environment is so
lonely, so pure, so bright. At this time my heart has been filled with countless
words to speak to this boundless moonlight.
I couldn't help but think of su shi's famous phrase, "the people have the
joys and sorrows, the moon has the beauty of the moon, I hope the people will be
long, the thousands of thousands of beautiful women."
Today is August 15th of the lunar calendar. It is Mid-Autumn festival.
The traditional Mid-Autumn festival falls on the 15th day of the 8th lunar
month. Because it is in the middle of autumn, therefore the name is. On this
day, there is a bright moon in the sky, which is very round in the form of a
jade dish, so there is a "middle autumn moon full circle". Chinese people regard
the yuan as a symbol of reunion, and the Mid-Autumn festival as a family reunion
day, so the Mid-Autumn festival also called the reunion festival.
I love the sun, but I love the moon more, the moon like that. In my eyes,
the sun is a bold, passionate boy, while the moon is a gentle, quiet girl. I
love this kind of peace and grace. Looking at the moon, I felt that she was like
a big pearl inlaid in the sky. She was like an incomparable and priceless jade
dish, pure and elegant, pleasing to the people. Lo and behold, the sky came with
a light cloud that gently covered the moon, and saw only glimmering through the
clouds. She squeezed and tried to get out. A gust of cool evening wind blew
away, and the clouds cleared away, and the moon revealed her clear face, like a
little girl's hair on her forehead and a smile on her face. I felt that the moon
in the clouds seemed more vigorous and poetic. I discovered that the moon was
being spread out by moonlight, which stretched to my eyes, as if inviting me to
visit her home!
Watching the summer vacation has passed, we have entered a new semester in
September, before we enter the learning state, we ushered in the Chinese
traditional festival after the Spring Festival, and dragon boat along the
Mid-Autumn festival, the Mid-Autumn festival can be noisy, every family
The most important thing about Mid-Autumn festival is to eat moon cakes
with family. In the early morning of the Mid-Autumn day, my father told me to go
to my grandma's house as soon as he went to the market, and I was still sleepy
when I got to my grandmother's house.
When I got to my grandmother's house, I first said hello to my grandma and
grandpa, and gave them the present. I was watching TV, and my father was
chatting with my grandfather, and my mother was cooking dinner with my
At about 10:30 am, my aunt and her family returned to the festival, so that
the family finally got together on the day of the Mid-Autumn festival. I am so
e_cited! When all the preparations were done, the meal was ready. The whole
family sat on the table happily eating, which is different from the usual
Grandma cooked a lot of dishes to treat us, chicken and duck fish and
vegetables, and a lot of mooncakes and drinks on the table. It's not easy for a
family to get together, not only for meals, but for meaningful activities. After
dinner, I took my family to China resources to visit supermarket shopping. I
gave you a whole aspect of the sea and air e_planation, a few twists and turns,
it took me a long time to e_plain the general situation of the whole supermarket
clearly, how, I strong!
After dinner, my aunt and my family left to leave, and I began to linger on
the festival that made me happy and happy. What a memorable Mid-Autumn festival!
I am so happy, I love this Mid-Autumn festival!
On Mid-Autumn night, my mother and I go to the railway station square to
admire the moon.
We sat on the bench of the square to watch the same round moon, it can not
help but reminds me of: "people have sensitized, month, wa_ing, rain or shine
this ancient full hard, I wish people for a long time, long life" this beautiful
poem. I said to my mother, "the moon is very round tonight." Mother said: "yes,
as the saying goes, 15 of 16 round the moon, but the Mid-Autumn festival is
different with previous years, this year is 15 moon circle, said on television
about 13 points at seven tonight's largest and most round. The moon in the round
the moon represents our families together." I looked up in the sky to see some
"little stars" flying in the sky, then asked: "mother, how the stars in the sky
are floating in the wind?" The mother said, "silly child, that is not the stars
in the sky, it is the light that people fly." I asked, "what's the use of
kongming lanterns? How can I not see them?" The mother smiled and said, "people
usually put kongming lanterns in the evening of the Mid-Autumn festival, and the
lanterns are in people's wishes. Everyone hopes that the wish will be realized
as soon as possible." I ask again: "why the Mid-Autumn festival want to eat moon
cake?" "The moon cake is round," said the mother. "it represents the reunion of
all families and represents a happy and happy life."
At this time, my mother also bought me a kongming lamp, say: "you want to
make what wish to tell kongming light!" I thought about it and said, "I hope our
family is healthy and happy every day." Then my mother and I released the light,
and the light of the kong lantern flew farther and farther with my desire until
it was out of sight.
What a beautiful Mid-Autumn festival!
The Mid-Autumn is a very important Chinese festival. It falls on the 15th
day of August. A few days before the festival, everyone in the family will help
to make the house clean and beautiful. Lanterns will be hung in front of the
On the evening there will be a big family dinner. People who work far away
from their homes will try to come back for the union. After dinner, people will
light the lanterns which are usually red and round. Children will play with
their own toy lanterns happily.
At night the moon is usually round and bright. People can enjoy the moon
while eating moon-cakes which are the special food for this festival. They can
look back on the past and look forward to the future together. It is said that
there was a dragon in the sky. The dragon wanted to swallow up the moon. To
protect the frighten the dragon away.
In China, Mid-autumn Day is considered to be a symbol of family reunion. On
this day, all the family members gather together at home to celebrate this
special occasion. Last year, I could not celebrate the festival with my family
because I was in university. However, this special day left a deep impression on
I still remember the atmosphere of that evening. All the students who could
not go back home assembled in our classroom, having a party to celebrate this
traditional festival. We tried our best to show our own enthusiasm. As an ethnic
minority, I performed a peacock dance, which received warm applause. After the
two-hour party, we went out to the playground and sat together to appreciate the
moon because it is a tradition on Mid-autumn Day. We ate moon cakes, played
cards, and listened to romantic poems recited by one of our classmates. In that
harmonious atmosphere, nobody felt lonely or homesick even though we were far
away from our homes.
Thanks to our classmates, I experienced such a colorful and interesting
Mid-autumn Day at my university. Thus, I learned to value all the festivals I
spent during my university life.
I liked the Autumn Festival very much when I was a small girl, because I
was with my family then. On the evening of August 15 of the lunar calendar, when
the moon was brightest, we always sat together outside in our yard to eat moon
cakes--eaten only on this occasion--and enjoy the beautiful moonlight.
Mother would then tell me the story of the moon fairy Chang-o, who lived in
a palace on the moon, with a jade rabbit for companion. I always imagined that I
was the moon fairy whenever I heard the story. When I grew older, however, I was
compelled to leave home for education in the city. And now I am living alone
away from home. The August moon only serves to remind me of the lost happy days
I had with my family in the country.
