More Info

Tonight the moon shines like a polished pearl, round and fat. It glows bigger and brighter than I have ever seen.
   Tonight is a special night.
   Tonight I am allowed to stay up late. Soon there will be mooncakes to eat, sweet and chewy. They are round like the moon. They make a circle for me and Mama and Baba. They make a circle for my family.
   Outside we light paper lanterns. I made one all by myself using my favorite colors. The lanterns and stars light up the sky. The moon makes everything shine like silver and water.
