Hello I’m Crown
Today I’ll be introducing vocabulary about the Moon Festival!
Welcome back to Crown’s vocabulary series~
Last episode we introduced Starbucks vocabulary
today, I’ll be teaching about the traditional holiday, Mid-Autumn Festival
and the English vocabulary you should know!
It is again that time of the year when we celebrate
Mid-Autumn Festival with our loved ones
This festival is often celebrated
around September and October
Many Chinese rank it as the second most important festival
of the Chinese culture, right after Chinese New Year
First of all, let's look at the word, 中秋節
中秋節 in English is Mid-Autumn Festival
This festival is also called Moon Festival or Mooncake Festival
Next up, 月餅
月餅 in English is mooncake
The most popular and important tradition
during this festival is to eat mooncakes
This is a cake made with wheat flour
and a variety of different flavored stuffings
Mooncakes are often round-shaped
this is because in Chinese culture
roundness symbolizes completeness and togetherness
Then we have, 柚子
柚子 in English is pomelo
Pomelo is the most commonly eaten fruit during this festival
Next we have, 桂花酒
桂花酒 in English is cassia wine
(Isn't Ke$ha that singer?)
Tick-tock on the clock (Tik Tok lyrics)
Tonight, make it pop, DJ...... (wrong lyrics lol XD)
Drinking this wine signifies a happy life and family reunion
Then we have, 烤肉
烤肉 in English is barbecue
People would either barbecue out in the open or in restaurants
Then, 團圓飯
團圓飯 in English is reunion dinner
Next, 燈籠
燈籠 in English is lantern
Next we have, 傳說
傳說 in English is myth
The most popular myth and legend for this festival is
嫦娥奔月 Chang’e flying to the moon
Legend has it that
Chang’e drank the elixir of immortality and flew to the moon
That is why this festival is often depicted
with the picture of a beautiful lady with the moon
As you can see, today I tried cosplaying into 嫦娥 and
here's the moon
Similarity 100%
Then we have, 賞月
賞月 in English is moon-gazing
Last, 颱風
颱風 in English is typhoon
Typhoons usually occur
in the late summer and early autumn time in Taiwan
Depending on the location of their occurrences
even though they are all the same, they will be called different names
In the northwestern Pacific, these storms are called “typhoons”
in the Atlantic, these storms are called “hurricanes”
and in the Indian Ocean, these storms are called “cyclones”
And now that you know all the basics about the Moon Festival
you can introduce this Chinese culture to your foreign friends
