Celebrating Mid-autumn Day

In the last week of September, students in Teda International School enjoyed the celebration of welcoming Mid-autumn Day, which is the second largest holiday in China, falling on the 15th day of the 8th month according to Chinese lunar calendar. It got its name because it is always celebrated in the middle of the autumn season. Students learnt legends about the holiday, understood the cultural significance of the holiday, wrote calligraphy on lanterns, guessed lantern riddles and made traditional Beijing style moon cakes. They also designed holiday cards on the mooncake box to wish their family a happy Mid-autumn Day. They also learnt that this traditional festival is also called the Moon Festival in English, because the moon is at its largest and the brightest on that night. Many of them are ready to have family reunion, eat moon cakes and watch the moon on the night of the Moon Festival. In 2017, the Mid-autumn Day falls on October the 4th, which makes this year special for Chinese people because it is only 3 days after the National Day. Happy Mid-autumn Day for everyone and enjoy the long holiday with family and friends!
