Moon Festival Celebration at OYAP

19 September 2018 by Christina Barker

Moon Festival

The Moon is round and bright on the 15th night of the 8th Month of the Lunar calendar. It’s Moon Festival. Our parents said, 'If you look carefully at the Moon that night, you may get a better chance to see a rabbit, a lady and a grand Moon Palace on the Moon'. At the Moon Festival night, we all sat outside the house and looked at the Moon and we wondered why the rabbit and the lady would live on the Moon? There is a story from a very Old China...
