The Middle-Autumn Festival
The Middle-Autumn Festival is one of the traditional Chinese festivals, it is often held in September or October.
During the festival, family members get united and have moon cakes together.
There are various kinds of moon
cakes, such as bean paste, egg-yolk or meat.
The shape of a moon cake is round as it symbolizes a big moon.
Moreover, in the evening of the
Middle-Autumn Festival, people get together in a vacant place, eating delicious moon cakes while appreciating the beautiful moon hanging in the dark sky.
To conclude, the Middle-Autumn Festival is a very nice festival for Chinese people.
I think Mid-Autumn Day is an old traditional festival in China.
Everybody likes it because it's a family get-together.
You see it is called"Mid-Autumn Day"，so it often comes in September or October.
It is on the 15th of the 8th of the lunar month.
Now， let's say something about this interesting festival.
Firstly, I'd like to say something about the moon.
I like it very much because I want to be an astronaut in the future.
That day the moon is round, big, just like a beautiful plate hanging on the blue cloth.
When I see the moon, I will remember the ancient myths——the godess Chang Er and her little rabbit are playing under the tree which Wu Gang grows.
I will also think about Armstrong's first moonwalk.
I will also miss the friends in Tai-wan island, in Macao and Chinese people who are abroad.
I know they are missing us very much, too.
Secondly, I'11 say something about the tradition on Mid-Autumn Day.
Look!There's a big tree in a garden of a Chinese fami-ly.
All the family members are sitting around a big table under the tree in the open air.
They are eating the mooncakes and admiring the full moon in the sky.
That is a family reunion dinner.
The mooncakes and the moon represent the love from a family.
I think this is one of the most valuable things in the world.
Thirdly，it is a very good opportunity to make three wishes on Mid-Autumn Day.
My wishes are: the first, I, an astronaut in the future, would like to go to the moon one day, and stay with the sky and stars; the second, I hope every person in the world will stay with family, share love from the family forever; the third, I hope everybody's dream will come true.
That is the Mid-Autumn Day in my mind.
I will always re-member: East or West, home is best.
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 me.
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.
