中秋節“ (zhōngqiū jié) - Moon Festival


Hi There!
大家好 (dàjiā hǎo

Moon Festival / Mid Autumn Festival is just around the corner.
I thought it's a good idea sharing some vocabulary about one of my favorite holidays.


So Moon Festival or Mid Autumn Festival is
"中秋節“ (zhōngqiū jié), literally meaning 
mid  autumn festival

So on this lovely special holiday, people in Taiwan visit their family, and it is also 
considered as an important holiday for family reunion.

Here are some things we do on 中秋節

1. 送禮 sònglǐ  -- give presents (to friends and family) 

2. 吃月餅 chī yuèbǐng -- eating moon cake

3. 烤肉 kǎoròu -- to barbecue 


So I hope you have a wonderful 中秋節!
