Moon Festival Celebrations


 In the Far East, many countries celebrate Double Ninth Day with their grandparents. Nine is a number of magic in Chinese culture, so it must be a magical day on the 9th day of the 9th month in the Lunar calendar! What do people do on the Double Ninth Day? How do they celebrate the great magical day with their parents or grandparents? What's the magical story behind the traditional festival? Come to join us on 23rd Oct at OYAP! You'll also learn some Chinese paper cutting skills to make a greeting card for your parents or grandparents or carers!
