The moon seems to be the reflection of life. We have sorrow, joy, parting and reunions, like how the moon appears to be dim, bright, waxing or waning. Therefore, the scene of moon may elicit strong emotions.
Mid-Autumn Day is the mid-point of autumn with a perfect full moon. On the night of the Mid-Autumn Festival, people either get together for fun, or miss one another from a distance. They follow the long-standing Chinese traditional customs of eating moon cakes and crabs, enjoying moonlight and lanterns to spend this unforgettable time.
On the last class day before the Mid-Autumn Festival holiday, all the students of ASJ patiently made beautiful lanterns by themselves.
As one of the symbols of Chinese culture, lanterns are not only used for lighting, but also have the meaning of happiness and consummation, reflecting strong devotion to family and country.
Using their skilled hands, students got the basic shapes of the jade rabbits in lanterns. The lifelike and vivid jade rabbits are good mid-autumn festival gifts for children's families and the school. The lit lanterns reflect people's yearning for a beautiful and fulfilling life.

Although the moonlight in the sky dissipates periodically, the moonlight in our heart shines all the time.
The Mid-Autumn Festival is a day of reunion. No matter where you enjoy the sight of a full moon, we hope you feel warm. We will always be together.
All the staff of Affiliated School of JNU For Hong Kong & Macao Students wish you and your family a happy Mid-Autumn Festival!
