This week is the mid-Autumn festival. The holiday celebrates the autumn equinox and is a harvest festival. Traditionally on this day, Chinese family members and friends will gather to admire the bright mid-autumn harvest moon, and eat moon cakes and pomelos (Chinese grapefruit) under the moon together. We have three days off this week, but have to make up all the classes. So I am teaching all day tomorrow, Sunday. It’s the strangest thing to make up a holiday; that would be like having to make up Martin Luther King’s birthday on a weekend. Attached are pictures of two of the buildings where I teach. The red banners are very common in China; these are welcoming the students to the new school year.
