The Moon Festival in Taiwan

Two decades ago, there was an advertising war between two soy sauce companies. They kept lauching a series of TV ads. One of the company, Wajashan Foods, came up with the slogan,” When one family grills, 10,000 families smell the aroma.” As the two companies placed more ads on TV, suddenly everyone seemed to be thinking about barbequing. That year, so many families grilled that a custom was born, and everyone has enjoyed barbequing during the Mid-Autumn Festival ever since. Nowadays, Taiwanese would BBQ in front of their houses with their friends and families on Moon Festival and it has become a particular culture in Taiwan.

This is how my students celebrate their Moon Festival

First, make a fire. (with charcoal)

Second, grill your food and eat it.

Then, move your body.

Above all, have fun!

Bill says on Edmodo:

I am happy that I could be invited to Kevin’s house to celebrate the Moon Festival with a big BBQ party. At this four-day vacation, I was invited to many BBQ parties, but the party in Kvin’s house give me a new feeling about Moon Festival. So, I hope that I can experience this again.

I had a good time last Saturday! My classmates and I went to Kevin’s house to have BBQ. I had BBQ with my junior high school classmates before, but this time I felt more relaxed and happy. Hope we can always keep these memories after graduating 🙂

This Moon  Festival was different for me because it was my first time to celebrate with my classmates!  Some classmates of E301 got together and had BBQ at one’s house. It really brought a lot of memories for us.

I had a BBQ  with my classmates last Saturday. It was my first time to celebrate Moon Festival with friends. Of course, I had a good time and ate a lot of meat. What’s better, we took hundreds of pictures when we barbecued. It was a pity we didn’t play sparkler.
