In Asian countries, most people believe that Spring Festival is the well-deserved king of festivals. Others, though, would give the title to Mid-Autumn Day, a festival that invariably makes Asians abroad miss their motherland. Mid-Autumn Day, which has been with Asians for centuries, became symbolic of people returning to their families. Now, with the cultural convergence that comes with science and technology, people from around the world take part in celebrating this Festival of the Moon. The Chinese created a story of nine suns to symbolize the great difficulty in life,” said Wang. “We literally need to go back to the ancient time and enjoy the old story.”
According to my grandfather, about five thousand years ago, there was a great hero in China, a famous marksman named Houyi. With his bow and arrow, he shot down eight suns to protect the Xia Dynasty. During the shooting of eight suns, his wife provided food and water with great love to help him.
Finally, Houyi shot down the suns and got two precious medicines. Being given these precious medicines as a reward allowed them to begin their new life on the moon. If they had not gotten the precious medicine, the loving couple would not be able be together.
One day, when the great hunter went out to work on the farm, a villain came to his home and asked for the medicines. In order to protect the precious potions, Houyi’s wife took both doses herself.
