Today is the 71th National Day of China as well as Mid-autumn Festival. They're on the same day this year which only happens every 19 years! Although we have a week off nationally, I only have 4 days off actually and can't go out for some reason. As for the National Day, I am really proud of being Chinese and never regret! When it comes to the Mid-autumn Festival, it's our traditional festival for family reunion and it's believed that the moon tonight is the fullest in the whole year. People usually eat mooncakes, admire the moon and miss some people who are not around. In this picture, the tiny building thing is a phone holder with the shape of the Palace Museum in Beijing, the round pastry at the bottom is a mooncake given by my university this afternoon.

You can never ‘regret’ being Chinese, as it wasn’t your choice. Look up the word ‘regret’ to make sure you’re using it right :)
