Story of Mid-Lantern Festival
Chang'e and Hou Yi
The story goes that Chang'e was the wife of Hou Yi, a hero who shot down nine of the ten suns that were scorching the earth. The Queen Mother of the West rewarded Hou Yi with an elixir of immortality, but he told Chang'e to keep it safe for him.
One day, while Hou Yi was out hunting, an evil man named Pang Meng came to their house and demanded the elixir. Chang'e knew that she couldn't defeat Pang Meng, so she drank the elixir herself. The elixir made her fly up to the moon, where she remains to this day.
The Mid-Autumn Festival is a time for family reunions, feasting, and moongazing. It is also a time for exchanging mooncakes, which are round pastries filled with sweet lotus or red bean paste.
The lanterns that are lit during the Mid-Autumn Festival are a symbol of light, hope, and good fortune. They are also a way to connect with the moon and the goddess Chang'e.
The Mid-Autumn Festival is a beautiful and meaningful festival that is celebrated by people all over the world. It is a time to enjoy the company of family and friends, to appreciate the beauty of the moon, and to reflect on the past year.
