i don't care the festival itself, but i DO like the mooncake, especailly the one with double eggs! So eveyday is mid-autumn day if i can have it. If i like, why not?
If possible ,spend the night with yr parent , the traditional festival is very important to them .

Whether I am busy or not ,every year , I’ll spend moon festival and spring festival with my parent

I found there was the myth about Chang'e in the Eastern Han Dynasty. I have seen a carved stone in the Forest of Steles in Xi'an. I saw Xiwangmu who was a goddess, and I saw a lovely rabbit was triturating herbs. I was inspired by these carved stones of far periods, and I think my dear nationality was romantic in the remote times.

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.

When I was a child, there was a custom of burning a pagoda which was built by bricks in Mid-Autumn Festival. I guess this custom was from the myth of the white snake lady. But many years passed, I don't know whether there is still this custom.
