Busy for festival
September 30, 2012 6:09am CST
Today is Min-Autumn, one of traditional festival to Chinese. So there is lots of thing to prepare. First, follow by Chinese tradition, every family should worship the gods and ancestors, at least my family every year do this. So, I get up early today to buy the ritual items with mum, even today is my 1st holiday of Min-Autumn & the National Day. There lost of people in the market to buy items for holiday, especially the place sell chicken, buecause in Chinese worship chicken is very important. I am resposible for queuing to buy chicken, it is lucky for outside early then waste not a long time I buy it. Buy all the thing necessary we go home star to prepare the worship. At night we will full moon, we don't intend to join the as for the activities such as Lantern Festival, for there will too much people at those places, I prefer to stay at home.

I am a Chinese and I don't think that we really have to spend quite a long time preparing for the Mid-autumn Festival. My mom just prepared for the nice lunch and dinner. Normally we enjoy eating here. Perhaps you have heard the saying "eating in Guangzhou" And at night we had the moon cake and some fruits and that's all. We even didn't go out at night to see the moon because tomorrow morning we have to wake up and take the high speed train to Hunan. We will be back to Guangzhou after 6 days.

Not both Chinese have the same Min-autumn Festival habit, just my mom is the kind of pay more attention on traditional thing, so she attaches great importance to worship. Are you travelling to Hunan? I think take the train should be very crowed at this time, but shold not compare with take the car, bucause all the highways are free this year in China.
