The Chinese Cultures Behind the Mid-Autumn of Festival--Shirley's 273rd Friendly Greeting, Sep 22, 2010

Happy Mid-Autumn of Festival!

Today is an important traditional Chinese Festival of Mid-Autumn that has a history for about 3000 years.

It was listed to be one of the Chinese national holidays by the central government in 2008. Since then, every Chinese resident has a 3 days' holiday; every family member goes back home to have a family reunion if they can.

Facing a so important festival of China, seeing the moon cakes everywhere, I am thinking that maybe I should introduce something behind it for you and all of the friends who are interested in Chinese cultures.

Therefore, I have written an article already on the day.

You can hit the link below to see something relates to:

-- The origin of the Chinese Mid - Autumn of Festival.

-- The Main Food of the Chinese Mid - Autumn of Festival.

-- The Most Famous Legends of the Chinese Mid - Autumn of Festival

-- The Main Activities of the Chinese Mid - Autumn of Festival

Also, for not satisfying the painting that I had created last Sunday, I have re-created it for you and hope to bring you a smile...

I do hope that my effort will be some of help with you to learn Chinese cultures and understand more about the pictures on the boxes of Mid - Autumn Food and everywhere relates to the festival...

I am just a learner on art of painting, music and English, to work on the web site in my free time. I would really like to do a few things with what I have learned to make this little web site to be an Electronic Bridge of Culture Exchange, Chinese Language Learning & Friendship making. To help the others while to improve myself.

I would like to appreciate your understanding, directions, supports and hope to get your friendly direction and help.

If you have any questions, comments or suggestions, you are welcome to write to or, or to publish your opinions in the forum.
