The Chinese Moon Festival falls on Oct.6th this year. Will you spend the day with your family? It seems that Chinese festivals have lost its original flavor and lose ground to foreign festivals.


That may explain why last year, South Korea applied to the United Nations to list its version of the Dragon Boat Festival as an intangible cultural heritage. BUT, China is the birthplace of this festival! So ,will the moonfestival be the next one?

i think most of Chinese people still cherish their traditional festivels..., the problem is that they can't offord the time to observe them during most time of the year when they are away from home, busying themselves 'making money' ...! but no matter how busy they are, they will join their family for a big reunion in the spring festivel...!

It's not so easy to have a family reunion

I work in a big city, far away from home.
I could not have the moon fesitval with my parents since i went to college over ten years ago.
I feel tired of ads. on mooncakes, "mid-autumn day, be with family memebers."
