It was Mid-Autumn and the moon was full*.
So we played lanterns.
A few of us gathered in my house,
to see me play.
Okay not really.
After lighting up the lanterns and playing with the fire,
we went out for a walk carrying lanterns with a myriad of colours.
As we were chit-chatting and doing our round of parade, some local residents opened their door and peeked at us curiously. Some pedestrians detoured from our path. Judging by the looks we got, I think some of them must have thought we are a bunch of possible arsonists. :P
Along the way we stopped for pictures, including some with flash,
and some without flash.
Some from a distance,
Lanterns are just a small aspect of what Mid-Autumn Festival is about. Conspicuously missing in this series of picture are boxes of mooncake due to the speed at which they were devoured in my house. Mid-Autumn Festival is the event for the reunion of the family, and for friendship. We had quite a simple event, but it was unique and meaningful as many of us are going to part our ways in the future in a few months time. Until next time...
* It was actually the day before the full moon when we took the pictures.
