I am helping my mother-in-law on the prayers preparation for Mid-Autumn Festival. I am happy for able to help her. It is a duty I suppose to do for being her daughter-in-law, or maybe I just like to get myself busy during festive seasons.
I have been celebrating this festival since young, it is the Chinese tradition and there is nothing to do with religion, I would say. I like the story telling part the most. I do not have bedtime story telling from parents when I was little. The only opportunity to request for story time is on this special day that happened only once in every year. The most interesting part is that each of my family members will have their own version of story to tell and they were only able to tell part of the story. So I have to use my imagination to connect all stories together and make up my own version.
How do you celebrate your Mid-Autumn festival? As for me, I would share all versions of the stories with Amanda and let her to decide which version she loves best.
