Mid-Autumn Festival

This is a mooncake.  Today is Mid-Autumn Festival and people gather to eat mooncakes and look at the moon while remembering family and friends.

Tonight we had a party in the garden under the moonlight.  We sang Chinese and English songs.  We played games like tag except you can't be tagged if you can say a three character Chinese phrase before they tag you.  We also played a game where the mother hen has to protect the baby chicken from the eagle where the eagle has to try to tag one person while the other person tries to keep the eagle away.  We ate mooncakes and watched the moon against the moving clouds.
