Wow! So much going on.
It is a very livery performance – repeated each year at Mid Autumn Festival.
Is the mid-autumn festival on October 5th?
This year, Mid-Autumn festival falls on 5 September. Thedate of this festival varies each year as it is based on the Lunar Calendar – and depends whether there is a leap year etc. The Lunar calendar adds a Leap Month every several years.
Okay. I was wondering about Oct 5th. Comment from another blogger. Peranakan from Malaysia.
Sorry, I was incorrect. It should be % Oct as the other blogger indicated. This year we didn’t celebrate the festival , as according to Chinese customs, when a parent passed away, there will be no celebration of the festivals including CYN for quite some time.
% Oct? 😉 That would be 5 oct right?
I understand the mourning period.
I must have pressed the shift key, % and 5 are on the same button. 5 Oct this year is correct, it will be on a different day each year.
Still missing my mom, went to the church to pray this morning.
Of course you do. And you always will. Until time has done its work, and you can take it more lightly.
Very true, I can’t force myself to forget her and there is no way to do so. Today is the Double Ninth Festival – it was for the memory of the deceased but now China made it almost a parents day. I have just left a short note on my mom’s memorial Guestbook.
