After a Labor Day Parade, my son, Jerry Wu and we went to a Chinese Fall Festival Picnic during Longwood Park in Salem.

When we got there, People already were lined adult and eating. Jerry got a full plate of food. we favourite a special moon cake; a outward of a moon cake box had Chang Er’s design on it. We ate moon cake to applaud a Chinese Fall Festival. Here is a story of Chinese Mid Autumn Festival.

The time of this story is around 2170 B.C. The earth once had 10 suns encircling over it. Each took a spin to irradiate a earth. But one day all 10 suns seemed together, boiling a earth with their heat. The earth was saved by a clever and authoritarian archer Hou Yi. He succeeded in sharpened down 9 of a suns. One day, Hou Yi stole a elixir of life from a goddess. However, his pleasing mother Chang Er drank a elixir of life in sequence to save a people from her husband’s authoritarian rule. After celebration it, she found herself floating and flew to a moon. Hou Yi desired his divinely pleasing mother so most that he didn’t shot down a moon.

Wu Kang was a lazy associate who altered apprenticeships all a time. One day he motionless that he wanted to be an immortal. Wu Kang afterwards went to live in a plateau where he importuned an imperishable to learn him. First a imperishable taught him about a spices used to heal sickness, though after 3 days his evil turmoil returned and he asked a imperishable to learn him something else. So a imperishable [taught] him chess, though after a brief while Wu Kang’s unrestrained again waned. Then, Wu Kang was given a books of immortality to study. Of course, Wu Kang became wearied within a few days, and asked if they could transport to some new and sparkling place. Angered with Wu Kang’s impatience, a master outcast Wu Kang to a Moon Palace revelation him that he contingency cut down a outrageous cassia tree before he could lapse to earth. Though Wu Kang chopped day and night, a enchanting tree easy itself with any blow, and so he is adult there chopping still.

Jerry had a grin on his face when he got his initial dish. You know Jerry likes food; we like Chinese food, too. There was a ton of Chinese food and boxes of moon cakes. Everyone enjoyed a tasty “all we can eat” Chinese food today. K.C. Huang cut a luscious and honeyed watermelon beside a food.
