The Moon Festival (Mid-Autumn Festival) is important to Chinese family because the moon’s round shape represents family reunion. For kids, the Mid-Autumn Festival is fun as there is one day holiday, they may play lanterns with friends until late in the evening. Besides, they may eat moon cake and listen to the fairy tales about the moon. The most famous fairy tale rooted in the culture of China is the story of Chang E and the white rabbit.
When I were a kid, I looked at the full moon and try to identify where was the Chang E, where was the rabbit and dreamed when I could have a close look of the beautiful moon.
Recently, my dream came true, I had a chance to look the moon closely. Thanks to the UK artist Luke Jerram, an artwork – Museum of the Moon, showed in Hong Kong. Thousands of people flooded to take a photo with the giant silver moon.
Well, sometimes dream comes true is not a good wish.
