Happy Moon Festival!

Tonight is the Moon Festival, the thanksgiving holiday for the Chinese and many other cultures. A symbol of peace, reunion and thankfulness, the moon is said to shine its brightest on this night of the year.


My very best wishes to you, this day of the Moon Festival!

I sat out under the moon for hours Sat. night watching wispy clouds drift by, thick clouds completely darken the sky, and openings in the clouds that let the moon shine down like a spot light. It seemed to be the brightest moon I'd ever seen. I didn't know in reality it was!

Glad I celebrated the "Moon Festival", even though I didn't know it at the time.
